The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) Conference for Detection and Sensing of Mines, Explosive Objects, and Obscured Targets XXIV was held the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, USA on 15-17 Apr 2019. The objectives of attending this conference were: to learn about emerging technologies and new research in the field of “detection and sensing of mines, explosive objects, and obscured targets”, to network with government/academia for potential collaboration on projects at the COE (SAFEDRONE), and to network to find panel members for the 4th C-IED TECH WS in 2019.

Many of the lectures were in-depth new ways to analyze the data of the sensors using machine learning and deep neural networks. These papers, which the COE will obtain in a month due to attendance, will deepen the knowledge for the DtD branch and therefore increase our ability to support projects that we are involved in, including SAFEDRONE. Multiple papers pertain to the analysis of GPR data, which could influence the methodology of the programming for the project.

Improvements and research in detection technologies were discussed, such as nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) spectroscopy, high-frequency electromagnetic induction (HFEMI), broadband EMI, synthetic aperture sonar (SAS), doppler-vibrometer, dual-band imaging sensor, and ground penetrating radar (GPR).
