Detection of landmines for humanitarian demining - a feasibility study

Project Details

Description

More than 100 million anti-personel landmines are spread during wars all over the world. In the afterwar period these landmines constitute a major obstacle for rebuilding the society and the present methods for finding the mines are very slow, very dangerous and very unreliable. This project has been concerned about studying high-tech methods for the detection of landmines and in particular the very small plastic types without any metal. The project was lead by Center for Advanced Technology and IAE contributed to the system definition and specification, infrared detection and detection by ground penetration radar systems. As a major result IAE demonstrated that the smallest non-metallic plastic mines can be detected by a stepped frequency ground penetrating radar.
