Abstract:

The problem of clearing subsurface unexploded ordnance from military target ranges and impact zones present the major obstacle to effective decontamination of these areas. This report has identified the information needs and delineated the capability deficiencies as they relate to range clearance. An R and D program was formulated for EOD joint service implementation that could provide the fleetfield operator with the means to conduct effective range decontamination in the immediate and mid-range frame. The general lack of adequate range records and descriptive physical data continues to limit the analysis of actual range contamination and development of comprehensive clearance plans, particularly with regard to subsurface ordance.
