Abstract

Metal detectors are used not only to detect but also to locate targets. The location performance has been evaluated previously only in laboratory. The performance probably differs that in the field. In this paper, the evaluation of the location performance based on the analysis of pinpointing error is discussed. The data for the evaluation were collected in a blind test in the field. Therefore, the analyzed performance can be seen as the performance under field conditions. Further, the performance is discussed in relation to the search head and footprint dimensions.
