In order to reduce the false alarm rate of metal detectors, dual sensors have been developed. In this chapter, we introduce one of the dual sensors, Advanced Landmine Imaging System (ALIS) which was developed at Tohoku University, Japan. ALIS is equipped with a metal detector and a GPR, and it has a sensor tracking system, which can record the GPR and metal detector signal with its acquired location information. It makes it possible to visualize the signal, and process the data afterwards, including migration. The migration processing drastically increases the quality of the image of the buried objects. ALIS evaluation tests were conducted in Croatia during October 2007 and May 2008.
