The fighting stopped long ago, but the killing continues.
All over the world, there are millions of refugees that have been driven from their homes by war. Today, many are still unable to farm or even live in their own lands because of the explosive hazards that remain in the ground after a conflict has ended.
Clearing the landmines, UXO (unexploded ordnance), and other ERW (explosive remnants of war) that are left behind in these former battlefields is something that has been traditionally viewed as time-consuming, dangerous and costly work. Manual demining, controlled detonation, explosives detection canine units and other traditional methods are improving every year, but are completely overshadowed by our paradigm-shifting machinery.
