Abstract

The Automated Anti-personnel Mine (APM) detection and classification is currently a broad issue. The detection success depends on the feature selection that we obtain from the sensors. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is one of the established sensors for detecting buried APM. In this paper, we introduce a method which improves the accuracy of detecting APM by using GPR imaging. This method adopts a segmentation technique for feature extraction and Neural Network as a pattern classifier. A seeded region growing algorithm is applied as region based segmentation for pattern construction following the Median filtering and Threshold of the original GPR image. A feed forward neural network (FFNN) w..
