General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Where there has been a history of conflict, the presence of munitions or munitions debris can trouble operations.  Identification of munitions debris and its migration patterns would be useful to ensure use of complimentary  clearance resources.

6

Thematic information requirements

8. Identify the presence of UXO,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Identification of  munitions debris  in a survey area will cause operations to cease until the  munitions debris  is cleared. This can cause unforeseen delays, costs and a health and safety risk to our staff.
