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


III.M.08. Vehicular Mounted Mine Detector ATD. By FY98, demonstrate down and forward looking sensor technologies including ground penetrating radar and infrared for use on a vehicle mounted system to detect metallic and non-metallic AT mines. Detection performance improvement of 100 percent is expected when compared to the current metallic mine detector. Additionally, detection speed enhancements of up to 2500 percent (5 mph vs 0.2 mph). Stand-off detection distances of 30 to 75 feet, an automatic mine recognition/marking system, and teleoperation will be demonstrated.

Supports: Mounted Battlespace, Early Entry Lethality and Survivability, Combat Service Support, Dismounted Battlespace, Ground Stand-off Mine Detection System.
