ITF/CTDT Side Event at 11MSP Mine Ban Treaty in Cambodia

29.11.2011

Representatives of the International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims Assistance (ITF) are currently attending the 11th Conference of States Parties to the Mine Ban Treaty, also known as the Ottawa Treaty, in the capital of Cambodia.

ITF presented today in the framework of the accompanying conference program a newly developed airborne reconnaissance system for mine suspected areas (MSA) named “Intelligence Decision Support System-AIDSS”, which was developed in cooperation with experts from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina with the financial support provided by the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs.

The new system provides an analytical overview of mine suspected area reconnaissance, resulting in the exclusion of suspicious areas and reintegration of newly defined mine suspected areas. The system has already been verified in practice and has proved to be very successful. Based on results achieved with multisensor reconnaissance in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina  which was implemented by a helicopter,  the area of  43.5 square kilometers was excluded from previously defined mine suspicious area  and additional 6 square kilometers of new land was included in the already defined  mine suspected areas.

Following the same procedure in Bosnia and Herzegovina,  an area of 18.9 square miles was exclude from previously defined mine suspicious area  and an additional  3.8 square kilometers of land was included in the already defined  mine suspected area  in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project “Intelligence Decision Support System-AIDSS” which has already attracted interest of the international community represents a new analytical screening system for mine suspected areas which has proved to be very effective achieving commendable results in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
