Abstract: Abstract: The objective of the Countermine Phenomenology Program is to increase the probability of detection and reduce false alarm rates by developing an understanding of the influences of the geo-environmental conditions on relevant mine and improvised explosive device signatures for sensor modalities. This involves the development and demonstration of more robust signal processing algorithms based on geo-environmental impacts. 3D laser scanner data were collected in order to obtain the high-resolution surface geometry necessary to determine subsequent impact on emitted thermal and reflective signatures. 3D laser scanner point clouds were used in the modeling and analysis for the computational testbed. Sites selected for the generation of high resolution surface geometry consisted of widely varying environments at nine sites in desert and temperate environments. The primary purpose of this report was to document procedures and measurements of the 3D laser scanner data and secondarily to provide a digital collection of the data so that the data may be used by other Army researchers in future research studies such as the ERDC Near Surface Phenomenology Program and other proposed 6.2 programs. The point cloud data file(s) for each site have been archived and are available for limited distribution.
