Abstract:

A brief field evaluation of four different infrared thermal viewers was conducted using buried and surface antitank mines as viewing objects. Under the conditions which existed, buried mines were visible for about half the viewing opportunities surface mines were almost always visible. Because of the very limited range of conditions of this brief evaluation, the results and conclusions presented here may not apply to other sets of circumstances and should not be considered general.
