Abstract :

Land mines have been used extensively in worldwide conflicts for many years, and have killed and maimed untold number of warriors and civilians. These explosives remain buried long after the hostilities end and still wreak havoc on unsuspecting citizenry going about their normal lives. An international outcry regarding these dangers resulted in efforts to end their use and to rid known mined areas of these dangers. This presentation discusses the development of a mine detection system mounted aboard a helicopter and the statistical analyses involved in that effort.
