Abstract:

Nova Research, Inc. conducted three total coverage surveys of the ESTCP UXO Discrimination Study site at Site 18 of the Former Camp Sibert, AL FUDS. These surveys were conducted using the NRL MTADS magnetometer, EM61 MkII, and GEM-3 GEMTADS arrays. The final demonstration site was comprised of four areas totaling approximately 15 acres. A 50m x 50m geophysical prove-out area GPO was installed by the ESTCP Program Office using the item of interest, the 4.2-in mortar. Three additional survey areas were seeded with the item of interest prior to the demonstration. Data collection was conducted with each sensor platform in turn, starting with the GPO and then moving to the other areas. The data surrounding approximately 2,000 anomalies from each data set, selected in cooperation with the Program Office, were subjected to individual anomaly analysis and the results were used to generate the master detection anomaly list for use by data processing demonstrators. This report documents the results of this demonstration and provides an archive of the collected data sets and other generated data products.
