Testing at Benkovac test site

on 11 May 2017

From 28th of April to 2nd of May, at HCR-CTRO test site Benkovac, a research team from the University of Manchester conducted a trial of experimental detection equipment. The aim of the project is to help counter the problems of discrimination of targets in uncooperative (highly mineralised) soils and to research more advanced electromagnetic detectors to the benefit of the international mine action community. The trial is financed by the British charity Find a Better Way.

The Benkovac test site is a world renown bench-mark facility. The test site was established in 2000 for the purpose of testing hand-held mine detection systems and those mounted on vehicles (https://www.ctro.hr/en/testing-and-certification/test-sites/test-site-benkovac)
