Abstract:

This report details the application of the SIG statistical learning approach to UXO discrimination at Pole Mountain Target and Maneuver Area, Wyoming. This technology has been developed and validated under previous SERDPESTCP efforts by SIG and Duke University. Specific core technologies were used in this discrimination. One important subset of the classification technology tested in this demonstration was multi-task learning MTL where information from previous sites is incorporated into the current classification. The multi-task classifier outperformed the single-task classifier. All performance objectives were achieved. All of the UXO were classified as targets. The number of false alarms was fewer than 30 of the total. An additional approach was tested, a generative model, that reduced the number of false alarms to 32. This represents about 2 of the total false alarms.
