Demining toolbox (D-BOX)

Themes: Radar technology

detection of anti-personal landmines and cluster munitions
Demining tool-BOX for humanitarian clearing of large scale areas from anti-personal landmines and cluster munitions.

D-BOX tackles the burning issue of anti-personal landmines and cluster munitions remaining from armed conflicts. It will provide Demining stakeholders with innovative, �easy to use� and low cost solutions interfaced and/or integrated in a comprehensive toolbox.

This �smart� Toolbox could be used during all demining activities to help operators and end users chose the most suitable answer for optimal planning and preparation to low cost, safe and �easy to use� tools for specific tasks during different steps of the demining activities adapted for varying scenarios and conditions.

MS3 is involved in the work package dealing with close-in detection, more specifically the high resolution 3D GPR performance evaluation and modeling.
