Canada participated in the International Pilot Project for Technology Co-operation IPPTC in landmine detection under the auspices of the Canadian Centre for Mine Action Technologies CCMAT. The goal of this multinational project was to conduct various laboratory and field tests on a number of commercial metal detectors in their use as mine detectors. Results of these tests will provide relevant information to potential sponsors and end users of such technology to help them make informed decisions about their equipment selection and use in humanitarian demining. This report presents the results of in-air laboratory tests, designed and led by Canada, and conducted at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield.
