[ba-unrev-talk] Mineseeker Foundation & the United Nations Mine Action Service

Any BA interest for raising awareness of this humanitarian problem, which can be solved?

Mineseeker Foundation

"The Mineseeker Foundation is committed to the improvement of technology in humanitarian mine action. The Mineseeker combination of Airship and Radar is one such development. Mineseeker Foundation will actively link and share information with all people dedicated to the improvement of methods in humanitarian mine action and participate in forums and groups such as ITEP and ARIS to cost effectively enhance the clearance of landmines."

"The total cost of the Mineseeker trial in Kosovo was approximately US$500,000. This cost was primarily met by Virgin Atlantic with DERA, UK MOD, Wescam, Linde Gas and North Face donating manpower, equipment and services."

"The scanning capacity of MINESEEKER Airship is 100 square metres per second (compared with manual demining of 40 metres per day). The UN estimate that 80% of the area currently classified as mined contains no mines and could be released through technical survey."
