deiming team in Cambodia
A demining team in Cambodia tries out HSTAMIDS, short for handheld standoff mine detection system, which combines a metal detector with ground-penetrating radar. The multisensor device is designed to give deminers a better picture of whether objects underground are explosives or harmless clutter. The U.S. Army has been using the system for a couple of years, and variations for nonmilitary use are now being put into the field. HSTAMIDS has been in testing in Cambodia since April.
