Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of live site unexploded ordnance advanced technology demonstrations ATD conducted from May through November 1995 at Jefferson Proving Ground, Indiana Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona Eglin Air Force Base, Florida Fort Jackson Military Reservation, South Carolina and McChord Air Force Base, Washington. The purpose of this Congressionally-mandated program was to evaluate unexploded ordnance UXO detection technologies that had already been tested within a controlled environment. The technologies were evaluated under different topographic, geologic and climatic settings at military ranges containing actual but unknown quantities of UXO. The report summarizes data gathered during the live site ATDs. The report will make it possible for technology users and developers to 1 identify capable technologies for UXO cleanup efforts, 2 establish achievable policy directed toward UXO clearance, 3 conduct more realistic cost-benefit analyses, and 4 identify research and development projects that will yield the greatest return on investment.
