Abstract

A thermal imaging technique for landmine detection is described. The technique uses microwave radiation and infrared detection, and works best for soil moisture levels of around 5%. Thermal images obtained in the laboratory show that the technique can be used to locate buried landmines and completely nonmetallic minelike objects.
