Abstract
This final report summarizes the findings obtained during the electrical impedance tomography study carried out during the period of July 2010 to March 2012 (Contract No: W7702-09 R241/001/EDM). The project was intended to evaluate the capability of detecting underground tunnels using EIT as well as to pursue various means of improving signal-to-error ratio through examination of random noise, modeling error and hardware imperfections. Phenomenology studies were conducted and the applications of tunnel detection and detection of munitions in culverts were examined. Recommendations are made for a potential new instrument to be used for research and development purposes. Investigation into detection of ammunition rounds led to the conclusion that EIT is not an effective technology for this application.
