Description:

Introduction

The test site and equipment are the property of HCR-CTRO d.o.o. The site was established in 2002 for the purpose of testing bio-sensors and vapour sensors.

Test lanes/areas

The test site (photos) covers an area of 427 m x 390 m. Grass covers the site and the soil is stony.

The weather conditions allow for the use of the test site all year round. There is almost no snow nor frost, and rain is rare.

Targets

The mines are buried in 10 m x 10 m squares, at a distance of 20 m and 50 m, in groups of 20, 13 and 3 mines. Locations for 20 mines are publicly known; other mines may be used for blind testing

The following types of mines are buried at the test site:

  • Anti-tank mines: TMM-1, TMA-1A, TMA-2A, TMA-3, TMA 4, TMA 5, TMRP-6
  • Anti-personnel: PMA-1A, PMA-2, PMA-3, PMR-2AS, PMR-3, PROM-1

Supporting equipment

There is a weather station at the test site.

Security

The test site is fenced off.
