A polarimetric multi-feature framework for the detection of antipersonnel landmines with ground penetrating radar (GPR) is suggested. The features result from independently acquired and processed GPR measurements in co- and cross-polar configurations. The initial detection in the confidence maps is made independently after which the coordinates of the detected targets are co-located. The marginal feature distributions are normalized via Johnson's transform prior to the fusion process and a Maximum Likelihood based linear-quadratic classifier is used as a fusion rule. The framework makes use of secondary data acquired from an open test site to train the classifier. The framework performance is illustrated on the data acquired over a specifically designed test- site.
