Aqua Survey performs UXO Markout Services with their customized metal detectors in the country of Laos. Laos shares a border Vietnam and despite not being a part of the official conflict, was densely bombed during the Vietnam War. ASI produced these videos which were an Official Selection at the Golden Door Film Festival in Jersey City, NJ:
Laos Episode 1
Recently an Aqua Survey team returned from a nearly month long expedition in the small Southeast Asian country of Laos. Their mission was to prove the capabilities of ASI’s bomb hunting equipment in the highly conductive soils of Laos.
Laos Episode 2: Roadside Explosives
Last time we tuned in, the team had just reached the first test site, but now the real challenge begins. Some unexploded ordnance folks say this is one of the toughest places in the world to work. Can they help the people of Laos?
Laos Episode 3: Bomb Disposal
In Laos, the Aqua Survey team hits the road (and water) once again. This time they’re on their way to a gold mine. It’s hoped their techniques can help locate bombs hidden within the mine.
UXO is a still deadly problem even 50+ years after the bombs were dropped. Aqua Survey is committed to the people of Laos and works with UXO survivors to raise global awareness of this issue.
