The Countermine Experiment, conducted at the Mounted Warfare Testbed at Ft Knox, KY in July of 1996 by this Night Vision Sensors Division of Ft Belvoir, VA and the Engineer Battle Testbed of Ft Leonard Wood, MO, was a classic 2 to the 3rd factorial experiment. It examined three classes of countermine systems in which each class had two representations. The three categories of countermine systems were aerial surveillance, ground surveillance, and explosive breaching systems. An analysis of variance performed on the number of Blue vehicles lost during this experiment indicates that the aerial surveillance system is the most significant factor in reducing Blue losses to mines.
