At present, most munitions response projects use sensors that were originally developed for other purposes and adapted to the munitions response mission. Until recently, it has been common practice to dig every target on the detection list, with the result that often as few as one percent of the items excavated are actually hazardous. Innovative munitions response technologies offer a rigorous, effective, and transparent method for classifying and distinguishing between harmless sub-surface scrap and dangerous buried UXO. These technologies are now making a transition to the field through demonstrations on live munitions response sites. Presentations in this session focused on recent classification demonstration results at the former Camp Butner, North Carolina.
