SMART DETECTION OF LANDMINES USING UNMANNED AIRCRAFT

Detection of landmines constitutes an augmenting problem affecting actually millions of people globally. Due to their long lifetime, the human victims (being mostly kids) are surely unrelated to the original conflicts during which these anti-personnel and anti-tank mines were emplaced. Currently, millions of such landmines remain buried underground and this fact constitutes a severe life threating situation which needs to be solved quickly and efficiently. STINGER proposed project concerns the development of an autonomous and intelligent minefield mapping system using unmanned aircrafts. In other words, an intelligent mine detection system to be developed which is able to be mounted on a typical (commercial) UAV for usage by designated authorities to investigate potential or already known minefields for buried landmines.

EDIDP

EDIDP

European Defence Industrial Development Programme

EDIDP is a biannual programme (2019-20) aiming at enhancing the competitiveness of the EU defence industry. EDIDP aimes at supporting the efforts of the EU defence industry in the development of defence equipment and technologies through co-financing from the EU budget. EDIDP has a budget of €500 million in total for 2019 and 2020. EDIDP is part of the European Defence Fund, launched by the Commission in June 2017, to help Member States spend money more efficiently, reduce duplications, and get better value for money by coordinating, supplementing and amplifying national investments in defence research and development activities.
