A rigorous signal detection theoretic analysis is used to improve detectability of land mines. The development is performed for sensors that integrate time-domain information to provide a single data point (standard metal detector), those that provide a sampled portion of the time-domain waveform, and those that operate at several discrete frequencies. This approach is compared to standard thresholding techniques, and it is shown to provide substantial improvements when evaluated on measured data. © 1999 IEEE.
