Abstract:

Technologies under development for the detection and discrimination of unexploded ordnance UXO require testing so that their performance can be characterized. To that end, Standardized Test Sites have been developed at Aberdeen Proving Ground APG, Maryland and U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground YPG, Arizona. These test sites provide a diversity of geology, climate, terrain, and weather as well as diversity in ordnance and clutter. Testing at these sites is independently administered and analyzed by the government for the purposes of characterizing technologies, tracking performance with system development, comparing performance of different systems, and comparing performance in different environments.
