Abstract:

This report describes the major areas of tunnel detection investigations conducted by USAMERDC during the period December 1966 through December 1969. A short discussion of the tunnel problem is presented, and two technical approaches, seismic and electromagnetic, are discussed. Both seismic and electromagnetic detector systems were developed and evaluation tests were conducted to determine capabilities and limitations of the devices. The nature of the problem addressed, i.e., detection of subsurface voids located in vegetative areas, does not lend itself to the successful deployment of the systems developed however, the basis for future development has been established. Operational parameters of the systems are presented in the appendices.
