Abstract:

Buried Unexploded Ordnance UXO is a serious and prevalent environmental problem facing Department of Defense DoD facility managers. Not limited to active sites and test ranges, these problems also occur at DoD sites that are currently inactive and in areas adjacent to military ranges that belong to the civilian sector or are under control of other government agencies. Over the past decade, SERDP and ESTCP have invested heavily in developing survey data analysis and processing techniques for use with commercial and custom sensor suites that improve the detection, characterization, and classification of UXO and anthropic clutter. These techniques include procedures for quantitatively characterizing and classifying the anomalies. In this report, we compare and contrast the performances of feature-based discrimination decisions on magnetic and EMI data acquired at the Aberdeen Proving Ground APG Standardize Test Site. The APG test site was selected because it was designed to imitate conditions commonly found at munitions response sites, and includes emplaced ordnance ranging from 20mm projectiles to general practice bombs.
