    The automated detection of plastic-cased antipersonnel landmines in 3-D high-resolution UWB radar images is considered. The 3-D images are projected in different ways onto 2-D confiedence maps, in which the automated APM detection is made by marking local maxima in the maps followed by thresholding. Specifically, we consider the confidence maps of the following types: energy projection (EP), windowed energy projection (WEP) and introduction here alternating sign windowed energy projection (ASWEP). The latter is shown to allow diminishing of the new technique are described by means of receiver operator curves (ROC). The ROC curves are built for the datasets acquired over several minefield simulation sites under different environmental conditions.
