The team of St Barbara Foundation prepares with its ideas again and again the ground for new developments. Thus, among other things, a device for the detection of low radioactivity, especially for DU ammunition (armour piercing ammunition, whose projectiles contain depleted uranium) has been developed. Contaminated areas can be localized, marked and secured, accidents can be avoided.
Another idea that shall make the works in humanitarian mine and ordnance clearance more efficient is the development of an App (Application) for smartphones for quick notification and risk awareness of discovered ordnance to the competent authorities. This also in the context of natural disasters e.g. mines and ammunition washed away by flood. In addition, warnings shall be given and the affected population shall be informed about the dangers of explosive remnants of war.
In everyday life there are always new approaches that give rise to new ideas.
