Abstract:

The main technical objective of the Former Spencer Artillery Range demonstration is to validate and substantially automate the SIG learning process using next-generation electromagnetic induction EMI sensor data for discriminating targets-of-interest. This process includes three major components, feature extraction, site learning and excavation. At Camp Spencer SIG tested three methods for generating dig lists that vary by the amount of training data required. The SIG discrimination process has proven effective at providing efficient site discrimination with minimal training data. Former Spencer Artillery Range provides another example of this. The addition of adaptive modeling approaches that use an a priori metric of site complexity has increased effectiveness of this approach.
