Abstract

This note describes a series of measurements made in the EGO goniometer at the JRC, Ispra, using electrically heated plates buried in sand and observing the resulting heat pattern on the sand surface in the presence of buried and surface laid anti-personnel mine surrogates and reference objects The angle of observation of the measurements has also been varied in some experiments and the effects of this are described in order to simulate the possible effect of such observations made, for example, with a forward-looking thermal infrared imager mounted on a mine-seeking vehicle.
