Abstract:

This report details the application of the SIG statistical learning approach to UXO discrimination for Camp Butner, North Carolina. This technology has been developed and validated under previous SERDPESTCP efforts by SIG and Duke University. Specific core technologies were used in this discrimination. These technologies fall broadly into the four analysis categories the sensortarget model, feature selection, classification, and active label selection. The non-linear classifier outperformed the linear classifier. Both linear and non-linear classifiers would have left more than 75 of the clutter in the ground. The stopping point for both classifiers left UXO in the ground, however. Two of these anomalies could have been captured earlier by selecting additional features. This study validated the robustness of key SIG technologies for targetsensor models, feature selection, classification, and active learning.
