Combined Devices for Humanitarian Demining and Explosive Detection

Proceedings of a Technical Meeting Held in Padova, Italy, 13–17 November 2006


The IAEA’s programme on Advanced Nuclear Techniques for Detection of Landmines and Bulk Explosive Material helps Member States to apply and develop nuclear techniques for this purpose. This publication is the proceedings of a technical meeting organized to evaluate combinations of technologies most appropriate for the detection of land mines and explosives in different landscapes, including civil security related applications. The objectives were to evaluate strengths and weaknesses of various methods, to discuss possible combinations of technologies and, in particular, to underline those aspects that make a specific technology well adapted to integration in more complex systems. Experimental results, as well as applicable simulations and calculations, have been presented to identify emerging and future issues and challenges. Topics include: applicability of nuclear techniques for explosives detection and humanitarian demining, combined systems (nuclear and non-nuclear techniques), developments in instrumentation, and issues relating to integrated research and education.
