The first edition of ORDATA, “The International Deminers Guide to Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Identification and Recovery and Disposal” was released to the public in CD-ROM format by the U.S. Department of Defense. It provided the international demining community with a free, first-of-its-kind unclassified reference tool for identifying, recovering and disposing of UXO and landmines. ORDATA was followed by ORDATA II, KORDATA and CORD.
