Paper Abstract

Landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) can significantly impede the maneuverability of military land forces and civilians both during and after a conflict. The need for a significantly improved capability against this threat has been identified as a high priority by UK MoD, and the British Defense Procurement Agency has recently award two Competitive Assessment Phase risk reduction programs to define and demonstrate system concepts which satisfy this. The program, generically called MINDER, is being run as part of the UKs Smart Procurement Initiative, under which MoD and industry work closely together to clarify requirements, and define and deliver robust, and cost effective solutions.
