  • A Real-Time Video-Streaming System for Monitoring Demining

    • Authors: Mohammed al-Husseini Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: The most deployed detection technology for landmine clearance is the metal detector (MD).1 Other detection technologies exist, such as ground penetrating radar,2 chemical sensors,3 biological sensors,4 and infrared imaging,5 to name a few. However, despite their widespread use, MDs suffer from high false-alarm (FA) rates since they cannot differentiate between the metal components in a landmine and harmless metal clutter. Deminers using MDs usually rely on their personal experience to differentiate between the sounds emitted by the MD when scanning a landmine or an item of clutter. Usually, they continue to excavate on a large number of occasions and end up finding a harmless piece of metal. For each found single landmine, it is estimated that a hundred to a thousand false positives are encountered.6 The high FA rate substantially slows the demining process and increases costs. This delays the recovery of contaminated land and the resumption of everyday activities around the affected areas.

  • The Development of a Humanitarian IED Clearance Capacity in Afghanistan

    • Authors: Alexander Tan
      Abstract: Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) have been widely used in Afghanistan since the mid-2000s, presenting a significant and life-threatening hazard to the civilian population. As areas become free from conflict and permissible for humanitarian clearance, an effective response is required to protect civilians. With the support of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the German Federal Foreign Office, and in coordination with the Directorate of Mine Action Coordination (DMAC; the Afghan national mine action authority) and other stakeholders, The HALO Trust (HALO) has developed and implemented a successful proof of concept for manual clearance of victim operated IEDs (VOIEDs). While VOIEDs are cleared in other countries and have previously been cleared in Afghanistan, this project, delivered in Helmand province, has provided the opportunity to develop and test safer and more efficient methods for the targeted humanitarian clearance of AIMs in the current Afghan context. This article explains the path HALO has taken to deliver the proof of concept, some of the results so far, and future plans for supporting the sector.

  • Explosive Ordnance in the Baltic Sea: New Tools for Decision Makers

    • Authors: Torsten Frey et al.
      Abstract: The global ocean economy is predicted to grow by more than 100 percent between 2010 and 2030. By then, more than 40 million people are going to be employed by the maritime industry.1 Recognizing this potential, the European Union (EU) devised a “Blue Growth” strategy that seeks to reap the anticipated economic benefits.2 While technological advancements allow for an increased utilization of marine resources, the newly gained access to untapped opportunities forces coastal nations to simultaneously face the challenge of explosive remnants of war (ERW) and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) in the sea.

  • Community-Based Inclusive Development: Integrating Survivors into a
           Broader Victim Assistance System

    • Authors: Bernard Franck et al.
      Abstract: During the Vietnam War, an estimated 580,000 or more bombing missions were carried out over Laos, dropping two million tons of ordnance across the country.1 This contaminated Laos with approximately 80 million items of unexploded ordnance (UXO),2 including ‘big bombs,’ cluster munition and sub-munition bomblets, grenades, rockets, and other types of ammunition.3 There also remain an unknown number of landmines across the country which are further remnants of the war. Today, fifteen out of eighteen provinces and approximately 25 percent of villages are still affected.4 Between 1964 and 2017, 50,754 people were killed or injured as a result of UXO and landmine accidents.5 While some landmines and UXO have been cleared, the task of demining the entire country will take considerable time and, though decreasing in number, injuries and deaths continue to occur. In response to these challenges, Laos ratified the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) in March 2009, and the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in September 2009.6 Additionally, in 2012 Laos launched a National Strategic Plan for the UXO Sector and has committed to reducing the risk of UXO by 2030 through national Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 18: Lives Safe from UXO. SDG 18 not only provides targets for clearance activities, but also addresses the ongoing needs of survivors and victims.7

  • Improving the Prioritization Process of UXO Lao

    • Authors: Hayashi Ontoku Akihito
      Abstract: Prioritization of clearance activities continues to be a central issue in the unexploded ordnance (UXO) sector in Laos. Although the government set a policy on prioritization, it has not functioned well as a guide for operators to prioritize their tasks. The majority of operators tended to prioritize their operations based on their past experiences. This has resulted in uncertainty about how to prioritize clearance operations and has led to a strong demand from stakeholders for greater transparency. UXO Lao, the national clearance operator, has implemented a trial to introduce a clear planning and prioritization process for operations in order to increase transparency and accountability. This article explains how the Laos National Unexploded Ordnance Programme (UXO Lao) identified issues with the planning and prioritization process, and how UXO Lao has improved upon them.

  • Game-Based Learning: An Innovative and Scalable Approach to Mine Risk

    • Authors: Ta Thi Hai Yen
      Abstract: More than 40 years after the war, Vietnam remains highly contaminated with 800,000 tons1 of landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) such as artillery shells, bombs, missiles, and mortars contaminating 6.1 million hectares of land. According to the Landmine & Cluster Munition Monitor, landmines and UXO were the cause of 129 deaths and 241 injuries between 2008 and 2017.2 Survey findings show that children are one of the most high-risk groups in many provinces in Vietnam, including in heavily-affected provinces such as Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Binh Dinh, and Quang Nam.3 Since the end of the war, children have been disproportionately affected by mine and UXO-related accidents, of which 38 percent resulted from children playing with mines and UXO—mainly small bombs and M-79 munitions3 that they did not realize were dangerous. A CRS survey in 2015 of 1,836 post-war landmine survivors found that 16 percent experienced accidents between the ages of six and ten (primary-school age) and 18 percent experienced accidents when they were aged eleven to fourteen (secondary-school age).4 Though the Vietnam government and international organizations have made efforts to reduce the amount of contaminated land, it is likely that several decades-worth of work5 are necessary to completely clear the land and water during which time children and youth will still be at risk. Although mine risk education (MRE) has been taught in primary schools for years, lessons are not standardized and are often only included as part of other lessons or extracurricular activities. Without frequent and in-depth lessons and discussions on MRE, many students’ knowledge of the risks of mines remains dangerously insufficient.

  • Providing IMAS Training to Local Military Forces and Mitigating Long-Term
           ERW Risks in Vietnam

    • Authors: Allan R. Vosburgh
      Abstract: Residual risk from unexploded ordnance (UXO) is a by-product of all modern conflicts. Developed by the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), the Management of Residual Explosive Remnants of War (MORE) program seeks to characterize risk and carefully examine the factors involved in reducing long-term risks from munitions.1 MORE looks at many factors, including the impacts of time on munitions, explosives, and fuzing systems. Other critical considerations are the resources available to manage residual UXO and best practices from former conflict areas used to successfully overcome the risk reduction challenges. In Vietnam, the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation (Golden West) conducts a program training the Vietnamese Provincial Military Command (PMC) to conduct explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) to international standards with the goal of building long-term capacity.

  • Cluster Munition Remnant Survey in Southeast Asia

    • Authors: Kimberly McCosker et al.
      Abstract: Efficient and effective land release is a core global priority for MAG (Mines Advisory Group), Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), and The HALO Trust (HALO), as significant and ongoing investment of resources and expertise continually improve procedures and approaches. Cluster Munitions Remnants Survey: Best Practice in South East Asia is the result of many years of close cooperation between MAG, NPA, and HALO on survey and clearance of cluster munition remnants (CMR) in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. Ahead of the 9th Meeting of States Party (9MSP) to the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM), held in Geneva in September 2019, operational and programmatic staff from the three organizations met to discuss key lessons learned during twelve years of surveying cluster munitions in Southeast Asia. The identified lessons and agreed best practice were summarized in a joint publication that was also presented at a side event during the 9MSP in Geneva attended by government delegates, national mine action authorities, international mine action and U.N. organizations, and civil society. The publication and side event were generously funded by the Government of the United States.

  • Long-Term Risk Management Tools for Protocols for Residual Explosive
           Ordnance Mitigation: A Pretest in Vietnam

    • Authors: Katrin Stauffer et al.
      Abstract: The transition from proactive survey and clearance to reactive risk management represents a crucial moment in the life of a mine action program. Relevant frameworks and standards, including the International Mine Action Standard (IMAS) 07.10, usually require that all reasonable effort is applied and a tolerable level of risk with regards to a mine or explosive ordnance (EO) threat is achieved in order to move to a residual state. Such transition requires the application of risk management principles, as stressed in the IMAS 07.14: Risk Management in Mine Action.

  • Augmented and Virtual Reality for HMA EOD Training

    • Authors: Allen Dodgson Tan
      Abstract: At the Golden West Design Lab in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, our team has been working on applying virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies to explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) for approximately three years with the support of the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs (PM/WRA). This work grew from our success with the Advanced Ordnance Training Materials (AOTM) program, which produces detailed and functioning training aids of ordnance fuzes using 3D printing technology. The AOTM products were able to provide new capabilities to training in programs across the world, and we believed VR and AR might offer similar opportunities.

  • A Twenty-Minute Walk Through Fallujah: Using Virtual Reality to Raise
           Awareness about IEDs in Iraq

    • Authors: Sandra Bialystok
      Abstract: In January 2018, filmmakers from the studio NowHere Media travelled to Fallujah, Iraq, with the objective of creating a virtual reality (VR) experience to explain how improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are impacting people’s safe return home. In just a few days, they met dozens of people, all of whom had stories to tell. And then they met Ahmaeid—an Iraqi father who had returned home with his family about a year earlier. Ahmaied told them about the tragic accident that had happened just a few months prior when his two older sons entered a neighbor's home to collect wood and set off an IED. Both young men lost their lives in the explosion. Working with a translator from the region and a local crew, and with Ahmaied’s permission, NowHere Media and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) created the immersive VR experience “Home After War” to tell his story.

  • Practical Notes on the Application of Thermite Systems in Mine Action

    • Authors: Robert Syfret et al.
      Abstract: There are numerous documents available online relating to the use of thermite systems for explosive ordnance disposal (EOD). However, most of the documents are either scientifically focused or address specific technical questions. This article provides broader practical information for mine action operators at the field and program levels. Although previously employed on a relatively small scale over the last five years, use of thermite as opposed to explosives for the destruction of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) has increased. This has been driven by greater engagement across the sector in countries with unstable security situations, and places with more restrictive legislation on the holding and use of explosives by mine action operators. In the past decade, The HALO Trust (HALO) has used thermite throughout the world, from Colombia to the Middle East, learning numerous lessons and best practices. The use of thermite will continue to expand across the sector, bringing cost-effective clearance options for EOD operators and increasing the operators’ knowledge of how best to employ the technology.

  • Key Performance Indicators and HMA: Time to Standardize'

    • Authors: Roly Evans et al.
      Abstract: Measuring performance is the norm across a range of human activities. But is it a norm in humanitarian mine action (HMA)' Some might suggest that it is. However, if we measure our performance, it is unclear whether we do so in a standardized way so that meaningful comparisons can be made. HMA lacks standardized indicators, whether it is for items of explosive ordnance (EO) found and destroyed, m2 of land released, or more general outcomes such as internally displaced persons returning to an area once cleared. Indicators can of course be ignored, misused, misreported, or misunderstood and some fear that they can be subject to manipulation or misrepresentation. The playing field for operators may not be level. However, this is not a reason not to use key performance indicators (KPIs); it is a reason for standardizing their use. The time is overdue for mine action to develop standard indicators with agreed definitions in order to measure, understand, and compare performance more accurately.

  • More Bang for Their Buck: Enhancing the Sustainability of Surplus
           Ammunition Destruction Programs

    • Authors: Joe Farha et al.
      Abstract: Dealing with stockpiles of surplus ammunition remains a key challenge for many African countries. In the last 10 years, at least 38 ammunition sites across Africa reportedly experienced unplanned explosions, causing injury and loss of life as well as significant damage to infrastructure and the environment. Numerous reasons such as overstocking, inadequate storage facilities due to insufficient resources, inadequate capabilities of storage sites, or simply unstable ammunition may be the cause of these unplanned detonations. These factors are often exacerbated by personnel having a limited knowledge and awareness, or insufficient training on relevant subjects such as explosive compatibility groups or ammunition life cycles. Regardless of the reasons outlined previously, the destruction of surplus and/or deteriorating ammunition is required as part of a general physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) regime, in particular to reduce the risk of unplanned explosions at ammunitions sites (UEMS).

  • Ammunition Stockpile Management: A Global Challenge Requiring Global

    • Authors: Nora Allgaier et al.
      Abstract: Ageing, unstable, and excess conventional ammunition stockpiles pose the dual risk of accidental explosion at munition sites and diversion to illicit markets, thereby constituting a significant danger to public safety and security. More than half of the world’s countries have experienced an ammunition storage area explosion over the past decades, resulting in severe humanitarian and socioeconomic consequences.1 Thousands of people have been killed, injured, and displaced, and the livelihoods of entire communities have been disrupted. The humanitarian impact of unintended explosions is amplified when they occur in urban areas, as illustrated by ammunition depot explosions in a crowded area in Brazzaville in 2011, resulting in approximately 500 killed, 2,500 injured, and 121,000 made homeless.2

      Abstract: MAG, Mines Advisory Group, has worked in Iraq since 1992 to make land safe for populations affected by decades of conflict. Landmines, cluster munitions, other unexploded bombs, as well as new contamination from the recent conflict with ISIS, have left a deadly legacy that prevents communities from using their land, and displaced populations from returning home safely.
