Contamination from unexploded and abandoned weapons continues to kill and maim people, and block access to basic necessities for years, sometimes decades after the last shot is fired in an armed conflict. Determining the exact location of weapon contamination is a difficult task for clearance operators. The potential to use remote sensing and identify innovative solutions in the field of detection and clearance of explosive remnants of war using off-the-shelf technology remains largely unexplored. Improving the understanding of recent technology developments and how those can contribute to enhance humanitarian operations is the focus of this challenge.
