Video: ARC Continues Lady Diana’s Fight

In Europe, a team of civilian researchers has recently developed a high resolution ground survey system for detecting minefields from a low-cost helicopter drone.

It will fly over fields and villages around the world in countries like Cambodia, Angola or Bosnia, and it will allow rapid and safe de-mining operations.
