Abstract
The Threat Detection Group at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield has undertaken a research program on the feasibility of the remote sensing of minefields. A contract exists to investigate the use of an image processing system in minefield detection by testing various algorithms and measuring their effectiveness. The purpose of this research is to demonstrate the feasibility of practical remote minefield detection by implementing hierarchical image analysis algorithms in a transputer and vector processor-based image analysis system. The goal of this report is to study the implementation of selecting portions of the middle level of the hierarchy on a transputer network communicating via an I/O computer, using parallel processing techniques. The report also presents the integration of the transputer hardware and software with DRES image system, and describes the construction of computer model minefield images.
