The key factors of the application of the airborne remote sensing technology for humanitarian demining are the minefield indicators [1] or the indicators of mine presence and the indicators of mine absence [2] and the analytical assessment of the contamination by the landmines [3]. The basic simple concept of the minefield indicators was given in [1], where it was related to the ordinary physical features of the artificial and natural objects in the mine suspicious area. Similar concept was used in other works, while in [2] were introduced signatures of the minefield indicators and additional contextual features. The signatures depend on the sensors used for the remote sensing and this aspect was thoroughly considered in [2]. The contextual features can be derived by the analytical assessment of the terrain contamination by the land mines [3], addition of the formalized knowledge enables efficient use of the indicators for the support of the decision making and for suspicious area reduction [4].
