About the project
Project "Biological Method (Bees) for Explosive Detection" aims to develop innovative methods and technologies for the detection of legacy landmines. It will be achieved by the advancement and integration of trained bee colonies, through three different techniques: training honeybees for explosive detection, polymer films as an explosive sensor, and honeybees imaging over the landmines. Two main methods will be used with the trained honeybee colonies: the passive and the active method. The methods may be applied to the suspected area reduction and to confirm completion of the demining process in internal and external quality control.
