Detection of mines and minelike targets using principal component and neural-network methods
This paper introduces a new system for real-time detection and classification of arbitrarily scattered surface-laid mines from multispectral imagery data of a minefield. The system consists of six channels which use various neural-network structures for feature extraction, detection, and classification of targets in six different optical bands ranging from near UV to near IR. A single-layer autoassociative network trained using the recursive least square (RLS) learning rule was employed in each channel to perform feature extraction. Based upon the extracted features, two different neural-network ...
