Paper Abstract

This paper reviews landmine neutralisation and marking systems and assesses how they can be down-selected for incorporation into a technology demonstrator system. The aim will be to illustrate detection, marking and route clearance capabilities against various anti-tank mines. A technology comparison matrix has been constructed to allow the down selection of technologies according to defined criteria. The matrix captures information from a top-level review of a broad range of neutralisation and marking techniques both currently in use and in development. The methodology allows filtering of technologies using the matrix and is flexible enough to take into account a range of operational scenarios and requirements. The results of an initial sub-system down-selection are shown. The requirements for the final technology down selection with respect to the overall system concepts are discussed. The application of this technique for down selecting technologies/methods in a broader system context is highlighted.
