Abstract : This report documents the FY95 Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Induction (PEMI) project. This project was a component of the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Detection, Identification, and Remediation Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD) program. Work under the UXO-ATD program began as a result of the new U.S. Government emphasis on Department of Defense reductions and consolidations, the need to close and clean up military bases and ranges, and return them to the public. The PEMI was one of several projects performed under the UXO-ATD program in support of sensor development to increase the reliability, accuracy, and cost effectiveness of the methods used for UXO detection, identification, and characterization. The PEMI project included several phases of work: modelling and simulation, assembling data collection hardware, performing a field experiment in March and April 1995 in Washington state, and performing a second field demonstration at the Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division magnetometer test range in Indian Head, Maryland in July 1995. The results of the project indicate that the PEMI method will be useful in UXO remediation efforts. Additional work is required to develop a field prototype that will be able to detect, localize, charactenze, and identify UXO.
