Completed, ongoing and planned test & evaluation projects

Ongoing:

Mine Detection using radar.

A hand-held mine detection device, Humus, is developed based on radar technique. As opposed to metal detectors, radar equipment can find mines with very little or no metallic content. Choosing the bandwidth of the radar correctly, the risk of metal scrap and fragments causing false alarms can be reduced. In addition to developing detection algorithms, much effort is put into classification of different mines and other objects such as stones, metal fragments etc. using advanced signal processing. This reduces the false alarm rate even further and the information of mine type can be useful when neutralizing it.

Completed:

Evaluation of ten handhold metal detectors, commissioned by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration.
