Mission Success – ASI / Geonics collaboration results in safer future for Lao children
Another UXO clearance mission was just successfully completed with a Geonics EM61-LX2 and the ASI Pointer in Khammouan Province, Laos along a proposed transmission line.
Laos is per-capita, the most heavily bombed country in the world. They’d like to become “the battery” of Southeast Asia via hydroelectric dams. In a mountainous, monsoonal, sparsely populated country with (electric) power-hungry neighbors, it is an obvious direction for the Lao government to move towards. We have included a few pictures from the project.
“The LX2 has performed effectively in locating unexploded bombs in Talong Village. I am glad we invested years supporting Geonics’ development of this powerful, lightweight and easy to use detection system.” commented Ken Hayes of Aqua Survey, Inc.
