Abstract:

This report provides a summary of current land.based munition detection sensor development. Sensors are categorized based upon the principle of their operation electromagnetic, conductive, mechanical, optical, acoustic, and chemical. Each category is subdivided into particular operational sensor types. Theory of operation for each particular sensor type is provided, as well as a discussion of advantages and disadvantages of each. A discussion of sensor performance is included. The final section of the report is a survey of commercially available munition detection sensors along with comments concerning their performance.
