Abstract:

The second meeting of the Expert Working Group on Minefield Detection Technology was held at MERADCOM, Ft. Belvoir, Virginia on 27-28 February 1979. Presentations were made by MERADCOM, the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan and Braddock, Dunn, and McDonald to the Expert Working Group on the current status and future plans for the project. At the end of the presentations, an Executive session of the Expert Working Group was held. Major conclusions and recommendations of the meeting included the following. The study is to exclude considerations of sensors emplaced in advance of hostilities and scatterable mines. The potential of multispectral scanners, passive IR sensors, wet chemistry photography, SIGINT, and mine neutralization was discussed. Recommendations were made for further review by MERADCOM and by individual members of the EWG of the overall coordination of the program, details of the analytical methodology being developed by BDM, and data on the RF-4C photographic system for use as a technical example in operational analysis.
