UXO Detection, Classification and Localization I
Recent advances in sensors and platforms used to detect, classify and localize UXO in the underwater environment have advanced to the point that full systems are ready for demonstrations. In this session, presentations on a variety of sensor and platform types ready for demonstration were given. This session also included discussion of machine learning technologies used to classify UXO and scoring methods to evaluate systems during demonstrations.
