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.
