Abstract:

The TEMTADS MP 2x2 Cart was demonstrated at the Central Impact Area of the Massachusetts Military Reservation, MA, during June 2012 as part of the ESTCP Live Site Demonstrations. The TEMTADS MP 2x2 Cart is designed to be deployable in areas inaccessible to vehicle-towed arrays. TEM data are collected at each target location while the cart is stopped, with an on-target collection time of approximately 1 minute. The data are inverted to determine the principal axis eddy current decay functions of the targets. Classification is based on comparing the eddy current decay functions for each target with those of the various munitions targets of interest at the site, as well as a variety of clutter items that are representative of the non-hazardous metal debris at the site. We report the classification performance results with the cart for approximately 1,300 unknown targets at the Central Impact Area of the Massachusetts Military Reservation, MA.
