Abstract : Experimental and analytical research on mine detection is described. The objectives were the design of measurement system for evaluating mine detection ideas and a plan for investigation. The approach was electromagnetic waves for ranges less than 3 meters. The report has three parts. Part I presents analytical and experimental data, describes equipment and reviews identification; it is the basis for design of a measurement system and the technical plan. Part II describes system design; Part III the technical plan.
