Humanitarian landmine exploration system and device "ALIS"
Dr. Motoyuki Sato, Honorary Professor at Center for Northeast Asian Studies, Tohoku University, had developed a technology that combines metal detectors and surface monitoring radar to image and detect buried landmines. This technology has been transferred to ALISys Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "ALISys"), and commercialized as a humanitarian landmine exploration system and device called "ALIS."
Conventional landmine exploration using metal detectors has faced problems in distinguishing between landmines buried underground and other metallic objects, resulting in inefficiencies in the exploration process. ALIS, in which the imaging technology is embedded, can capture landmines underground along with their shapes, significantly improving the efficiency and accuracy of exploration. It is being used for humanitarian landmine demining work in countries around the world, including Cambodia.
