Acoustic Landmine Detector



Buried landmines can be hard to detect, especially if they have been buried for a long time. When vibrated. however, landmines interact dynamically with the soil around them. The detector works by transmitting two sound tones (two frequencies) and records the sound that bounces back. The detector analyzes the characteristic response of the landmine-dirt system and then determines whether a landmine is buried Two frequencies are transmitted into the ground. The detection algorithm detects the non-linear combination of these two frequencies. These non-linear (non-harmonic) peaks in the spectrum of the response is caused by the landmine bouncing against its environment. Music Video: Youtube
