Army Tests AI-Based Multisensor Tech for Explosives Detection

AI-Based Multisensor

The U.S. Army has demonstrated a machine learning-based sensor technology designed for fixed-wing aircraft that works with synthetic aperture radars to detect explosives from a designated safety point. Lt. Col. Mike Fuller, program manager at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, said the team used side-by-side comparisons of multiple modalities during the assessment to maximize the probability of threat detection while minimizing false alarms.
