IMAS/ NMAS Technical Working Group Meeting for ADS in Survey and Clearance

Animals have been used for centuries as a detection tool. Today, their use for odour detection is widespread, encompassing applications relevant to the military, the police, border control, health, emergency response, humanitarian aid, environmental management, and more. With respect to use of animals for explosives detection, the central issue is not capability, but confidence. Any tool used for explosives detection must operate at consistently high detection rates, and obtaining reliable detection is the key issue addressed through training systems. The use of animals in mine action have been on a steady decline since 2008.

This technical working group meeting (TWGM) is jointly organized by the GICHD and NPA.

Funding support for this workshop is provided by GFFO and NMFA.
