Rapid Route Area Mine Neutralisation System
The Rapid Route Area Mine Neutralisation System (RRAMNS)
project is a major part of the Land 133 (Phase 2) project
that seeks to provide the Australian Defence force with the
capability to rapidly detect and neutralise landmines on routes
and within specific areas, such as airfields. RRAMNS uses
metal, infra-red and ground penetrating radar detectors in
combination to detect land mines with more accuracy than can
be achieved using each detector in isolation.
Ebor has supported this project by:
- Developing a tool for archiving detection data in real
- Developing a tool to extract data from the RRAMNS into
the Countermine Test Management System (CTMS), and
- Analysing the data from test runs to assess RRAMNS performance.
The data archiver is written in Java and runs on both Microsoft
Windows and QNX operating systems. The data extractor selectively
copies target data from Microsoft Excel workbooks into CTMS
format files, and is written in VBA for Excel. We created
MATLAB routines to assess the accuracy of detections in the
field and provided Statistical Modelling and Data Analysis
consulting on issues such as assessing the accuracy of recording
software and the results of testing.
