Title

Development of deminer to neutralize antipersonnel landmines for humanitarian demining

Abstract

"An estimated 100 million unexploded land mines left over from this century's various wars and conflicts lie scattered in 94 countries, still lethal - decades after the peace treaties have been signed. Many of those mines are of the more modern "anti-personnel" variety which are designed to maim, rather than kill...Due to the exorbitant cost of current demining techniques, there is a need for a simple but cost effective method to neutralize mines. The present study, actually, considers a properly singled out mission: mine neutralization in shrubby, dry grounds"--Abstract, page iii.
