Phase 1A - Preliminary UXO research

The preliminary UXO investigation consists of two phases, in which several activities are carried out:

I - Inventory of source material

  • Literature study
  • Archival research
  • Interviews with local inhabitants and eye witnesses
  • Aerial photography interpretation

II - Assessment of the source material

This phase will only be carried out if the problem inventory gives rise to it:

  • Assessment of the inventory
  • Horizontal and vertical delimitation of the suspect area
  • Determination of the explosives types

The end result of the research is a report and an inventory map in GIS. This indicates where and at what depth there may be UXO and of what type.
