List of testing facilities available

EMRTC has over thirty test facilities that could be used for countermine research. One facility is especially designed for mine detection. No detonations have been allowed in the area; the area is free of explosive and/or metal residue.


Completed, ongoing and planned test & evaluation projects

EMRTC is continually working on T&E projects involving numerous forms of energetic materials. In the areas of de-mining the emphasis has been on providing a non-contaminated area for the study and implementation of mine detection.
