The use of robotic vehicles to detect and remove unexploded ordnance (UXO) from battlefields and training ranges is currently being explored by the Naval Explosive Ordnance Technology Division, Indian Head, Maryland. In support of this effort, research was conducted on the characterization and use of small commercially available magnetic inductance sensors to detect a variety of common U.S. submunitions. Sensor test bed mounting on a small wheeled vehicle with a sweep device allowed for dynamic testing against submunitions under laboratory and field conditions.
