The objective of this live site project is to demonstrate advanced methods for the detection and discrimination of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in a production setting. Specific objectives are to:
Through SERDP and ESTCP sponsorship, SKY and the University of British Columbia Geophysical Inversion Facility have developed and tested numerous discrimination methodologies using both production-type data (e.g. Geonics EM-61, total-field magnetics) and next-generation sensor data (e.g. BUD, TEMTADS, MPV, MetalMapper). These signal processing algorithms and strategies have been tested using full coverage, dynamically acquired data and cued interrogation, statically acquired data sets collected during previous ESTCP live site classification demonstrations (former Camp Sibert, AL; former Camp San Luis Obispo, CA; and former Camp Butner, NC). These methods will be adapted and extended to support the ongoing series of ESTCP's live site classification demonstrations.
