Unfortunately, uncleared minefields are still a serious problem in many parts of the world. An Australian developed Magnetic Resonance system by CSIRO and manufactured and distributed by RFC Ambrian is set to allow more efficient land mine detection.
Known as MRead, the technology is not affected by other metal in the ground such as shrapnel and for the first time can detect land mines made entirely of plastic. Land mines can be cleared allowing people to return to normal life without the fear of these devices.
