It should be explained that DTW does not carry out any land mine clearance activities. Equipment is developed with the guidance of explosives and munitions experts working for humanitarian mine clearance organisations. Any testing is conducted by these organisations with DTW as observers.
This remote entry system was developed by DTW for a mine clearance NGO in Cambodia.
