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

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

Objective

Landmines and the cluster munitions still kill or maim civilians every day in an indiscriminate manner even long after conflicts are over. At the current rate of clearance of about 500,000 mines per year and assuming no additional mines are laid from now on, it could still take hundreds of years to find and clear all the landmines around the world.
D-BOX will tackle the burning issue of anti-personal landmines and cluster munitions remaining from armed conflicts. This will be achieved through the development of innovative solutions that will be interfaced and integrated in a comprehensive toolbox that is going to provide demining stakeholders the best tools, methods and procedures. This “smart” Toolbox could be used during all demining activities (from the preparation of the mission until the elimination of the mines including communication to general public and donors) to help operators and end users have the most suitable answer, cheap and “easy to use” tools for a specific task during the different steps of the demining activities and adapted to different scenarios and conditions.
D-BOX project, starting by an assessment of the state of the art on related on-going-activities and scenario, the requirements for different tools and toolbox will be conducted with a strong involvement of end-users. On this basis, the Demining toolbox and innovative tools will be developed. D-BOX will propose innovative, cheap and easy to use tools They will covered human and ethical procedures, technologies for mapping and localize landmines and cluster munitions, neutralization, protection, education and training .They will be integrated in the final version of the toolbox. All these parts will lead to a series of demonstrations to evaluate the performances and to the establishment of a roadmap for its development and future implementation.
