Abstract
A Pre-Trial Assessment (PTA) of the Digger D2 vegetation and ground-clearing flail was conducted near the Digger factory at Tavannes, Switzerland. The Digger D2 was developed by Digger DTR, a Switzerland-based charity. The PTA allows testing organisations such as those represented by ITEP (International Test and Evaluation Programme for Humanitarian Demining) to gather and verify basic data before undertaking costly and time consuming effectiveness trials. Although a PTA is not intended to definitively measure performance, it does indicate the general characteristics and potential performance issues of the equipment so that they can be explored further at a later stage.
