Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.M.10. Advanced Mine Detection Sensors. By FY97, evaluate enhancements to forward looking radar and integrate this technology into a single system for static testing against anti-tank and anti-personnel mines with a 98 percent probability of detection with a false alarm rate of < 0.2 per meter of forward progress. By FY98, demonstrate potential payoffs for increased standoff detection in all weather conditions using advanced FLIR and MMW radar. By FY99, investigate acoustic and seismic technologies as an additional means of enhancing the performance of ground based detection systems. BY FY00, demonstrate multi-sensor ability to detect mines remotely at speeds of 5-20 Km/hr. By FY01, integrate these technologies onto a surrogate ground-based platform and conduct advanced mine detection demonstration.

Supports: Early Entry Lethality and Survivability, Mounted and Dismounted Battlespace Battle Labs, Combat Service Support.
