What

Geomine’s revolutionary technology has been invented to radically reduce landmine contamination around the world

The tremendous advantage of this unique technology is the fact that the invented algorithm analyses massive amounts of data and identifies the areas which are CLEAR of mines. Geomine’s method allows for a quick and highly effective means of ELIMINATING THE CLEAR OF MINES AREA

Why

According to international surveys approximately 80% of all land suspected as mined is in fact clear

Nitrogen is a core component in every explosive material. Eventually, the molecule leaks from the explosive and is then absorbed into the surrounding ground and vegetation. This process causes nitrogen contamination of the ground and vegetation, not visible to the human eye. However, the use of a Hyperspectral camera allows us to identify the areas where land mines are present and which areas are completely free

How

Geomine’s technology can either confirm the presence of mines or their absence, thereby serving to release land which does not need to be cleared in the first place

Geomine’s solution allows not only pinpointing of the areas where the ERW are located but also, and maybe most importantly, it allows identifying of the areas where no ERW are present. According to UN data, approximately 80% of all land designated as mined is in fact clear. Therefore the economic and humanitarian value of pinpointing the mine-free areas is of real importance
