Abstract:

The Navy and the Marine Corps have been continually concerned about the antivehicle and antiship mines. The development of effective minefield detection procedures are of great importance as they will enhance the ability of the Navy and Marine Corps to perform their tasks. One approach that has been recently studied by the scientists of the Navy is the use of tests of randomness. In that study they express the need to develop detection methods that are based on two-dimensional processes that incorporate the dependence structure of the nearby observations. In this interim performance report four research projects related to this problem are discussed. The two-dimensional scan statistic, discussed in the last project, has the potential to be very useful in the minefield detection problem. Minefield detection, Scan statistics.
