Title: Fusion of Information from Optical, Thermal, Multispectral Imagery and Geologic/Topographic Products to Detect Underground Detonations. Annex 1 - Ground Truth report. Phase 2. Final report, 8 Nov 91-25 Feb 92

Abstract

The project is entitled Fusion of Information from Optical, Thermal, Imagery and Geologic/Topographic Products to Detect Underground Detonations. The study established the feasibility of using such data to support the detection and monitoring of underground tests. The second phase of the study brings the analyses into the real world by testing the feasibility against a real underground test, recommends the suite of sensors to be used and the tools to exploit them. The current task involves the selection of an ongoing underground nuclear test, the scheduling of overhead imagery and the analysis of both the collected imagery and collateral data. A significant portion of this task is the compilation of a Ground Truth document that provides an historical background of the test and the changes that occurred. This report provides data that can and will be used to support the development of special digital tools that may be employed with multispectral data collected by various civil sensors. Documentation of ground truth before and after the test detonation, provides data on the visible changes that have occurred which should become the focal point for developing analytical tools to record the existence of an underground test.
