Landmine detection by nuclear techniques

Abstract

According to the information given by recent published data , more than 150 million land mines are buried in more than 70 countries, among them is Egypt . In Egypt, more than 23 million land mines lie buried in the northern parts of the western desert and western parts of Sinai . These mines are triggered accidentally by civilian activities, ravaging the land and killing or maiming a lot of innocent civilian people . For humanitarian demining , the removal of land mines already in the ground is very difficult and quite costly. In addition, detecting minimum metal antipersonnel mines and distinguishing them from the metallic debris of a minefields is difficult with current available detectors.
