15 May 2003 Planned Meeting for ITEP Project
05 May 2003 The ITEP Project , leaded by Germany started its practical phase with the training of the "deminers" involved in the execution of the test. Four detectors from Ceia (IT), Ebinger, Foerster, Vallon (all GE)are used to define the reliability of detector tests i.e. how many personnel, targets etc. shall be involved to achieve reliable data from the statistical, technical and human influence points of view. After the first assessment of the results further tests are foreseen in Croatia and Germany in June & September accordingly. The results will be generalised and added to the standards for testing of metal detectors CWA 07.
31 Mar 2003 Draft version 9 of the CEN Workshop Agreement as edited after the 3rd CW07 Meeting is now available.
31 Mar 2003 News from CCMAT:
The Viking Power Dozer was evaluated to determine its application to military mine clearing and humanitarian demining operations. A report of the trials is available on the CCMAT web site.

A prototype version of the mine hammer was evaluated. Other trials include the ProneMat being developed at The University of Calgary and the Complex Lower Leg under development at the University of Waterloo. In October, proof of concept trails for APL-DRUMS being developed by Guigne International, were carried out.
Development work on all projects is continuing. The results will be soon provided in the Technical Reports section of the CCMAT web site.

A trial of a segmented roller is planned for March-April in Thailand as a collaboration between CCMAT, Night Vision Laboratory (Ft Belvoir) and TMAC under ITEP sponsorship (ITEP project 3.2.3).
