Shopping for mechanical mine clearance equipment? Well, check out the German
Federal Foreign Office's Humanitarian Mine Action Equipment Catalog
1998/1999. The catalog showcases state of the art equipment available
for mechanical mine clearance and detection.
Written in German and English, the catalog gives a detailed description and
specifications of equipment. Though the pictures are grainy, they do provide
a visual of the machines included in the catalog. The catalog will be updated
so that it can be a guide for all users of mechanical demining equipment.
Manufacturers of demining equipment are encouraged to send information on
new equipment developments to the German Federal Foreign Office.
This catalog was initiated by the German Federal Foreign Minister. During
the second International Expert Conference on the use of Modern Mine Clearance
Technology , the Minister announced that the German Federal Foreign Office
would be willing to act as a center for coordinating data on mine clearance
technology. This would result in compiling a list of existing equipment in
close cooperation with the United Nations Mine Action Service.
