Safety for future
Disarming unexploded ordnance
The environmental conditions that unexploded ordnance is exposed to over time have chemical as well as physical effects and often result in a critical unexploded ordnance (UXO) situation on site. Conventional Render Safe Procedures (RSP) are often not feasible without touching or moving the unexploded ordnance. Blasting unexploded ordnance has been the last RSP to be used and sometimes causes high collateral damage. Additionally, underwater blasting leaves severe environmental damage by damaging or killing marine life.
