Abstract
The document shows theoretical and experimental results of the capabilities of an active longwave infrared imaging system on surface-laid minefield. Three anti-tank and three anti-personnel mines on soil and prairie grass backgrounds are investigated for the detection and identification capabilities of this scanning imaging system. After establishing the detection and identification capabilities of the set-up used in this experiment, an associated parameter of the imaging system which can be used to estimate the detection and identification capabiliites of other imaging set-ups with different configurations is evaluated. In addition, speckle is studied and its presence is demonstrated in the images obtained.
