Abstract
In March and April 2003, the Canadian Centre for Mine Action Technologies (CCMAT), the U.S. Humanitarian Demining Office, and the Thailand Mine Action Centre undertook a cooperative trial of the Pearson Survivable Demining Tractor and Tools with its segmented roller attachment. This trial evaluated the effectiveness of the roller attachment in triggering three different antipersonnel landmines at depths ranging from 0mm to 200mm. In one case a depth of 350mm was used. Two different soil conditions were used: (i) hard, recently de-brushed conditions, and (ii) freshly tilled or loosened soil. This project makes up a part of the ongoing CCMAT efforts at test and evaluation of mechanical equipment for demining operations.
