The primary objective of this demonstration was to assess the feasibility of acquiring classification quality data during dynamic Electromagnetic Induction EMI surveys of Munitions Response Sites MRS. The process of obtaining both detection and classification data during a single dynamic survey is known as the one-pass or dynamic classification method of data collection. By demonstrating the dynamic classification methodology using the One Pass Time-domain EMI Array OPTEMA to survey areas of the Aberdeen Proving Ground APG Standardized UXO Technology Demonstration Site, we acquired a baseline data set that allowed us to quantify the detection and classification performance enabled by this methodology with performance metrics e.g., probability of detection, probability of false alarm, etc. corresponding to a standard set of test items. The intent of this demonstration was to determine if the dynamic classification approach can enable detection and classification performance comparable to that of the existing set of cued classification sensors.
