Abstract : A mine detector system that utilizes an explosive comparator to increase the sensitivity and selectivity. The system utilizes a generator to transmit a signal simultaneously toward the area to be scanned for mines and towards a sample of the explosive sought. Detectors are positioned within the device to receive the reflected signals from both the area to be scanned and the sample explosive. The outputs from both detectors are fed to preferably a null type comparator for correlation. When the two signals correlate, mine presence is indicated. (Author)
