Abstract:

Mines are weapons. Thanks to the improvements allowed by electronics they become more and more efficient and cost effective. On land as well as at sea, they would be widely used at theater level by all belligerents in all types of conflicts. Unfortunately improvements in mine countermeasures are more difficult to realize and to use on the field. The nations of the free world should increase their efforts do in the domain of those countermeasure systems, or they risk to be the first victims of the increasing advance taken by mines and mine delivery systems. The problem is as difficult as urgent. Keywords Land mines, Underwater mines.
