Abstract: Metallic and nonmetallic mines were utilized to construct a minefield in arid soil at Twentynine Palms, California to assess the extent to which long-wavelength radar could be used to detect buried mines by remote sensing. Surface and subsurface mines were-placed in accordance with known enemy doctrine, and the site was imaged with X-, C- and L-band radar from a Navy P-3 aircraft. This report describes the construction and physical characteristics of the test sites, and presents and discusses the results of imagery analysis.
