Beginning with a review of the current need for identification of buried and surface unexplored ordnance such as mines, shells, bombs, this book then explains existing techniques for electromagnetic detection of such targets. A detailed treatment of target signatures (natural frequencies and related parameters) for identification and discrimination of false alarms is also given.
