Field Evaluations

Operational Field Evaluations are one of the most important aspects of the Humanitarian Demining R&D Program because the equipment undergoes testing in actual minefields. These evaluations allow the host country to operate the equipment and determine whether it is useful, cost effective and efficient.

Field evaluations have been part of some amazing success stories, such as Mozambique. Prior to the early 1990s, the country endured three decades of conflict which left it with one of the most severe landmine and ERW problems in the world. Today, Mozambique is free of threat of the threat of landmines due in part to two HD R&D Program technologies: the Handheld Standoff Mine Detection System and the Orbit Screener.

Today, the Humanitarian Demining R&D Program is conducting field evaluations of various technologies in several countries. Choose from the county links at the left to learn about the landmine threats, terrain challenges and technologies at work.
