Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Landmine Detection

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for Landmine Detection

About the project

This project is led by Dr John Day at the University of Bristol. Having developed an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for nuclear radiation mapping and been the only one allowed to fly at Sellafield Nuclear facility, this team of experts have now turned their attention to detecting landmines.

The use of unmanned autonomous platforms for mine detection is a topic of interest for the sector and this project will aim to build a semi-autonomous multi-rotor vehicle with the ability to carry a number of different sensing payloads.

With integrated software for autonomous flight and real-time data transfer capabilities this project could significantly reduce the danger that a human deminer faces in the field.
