Several international agreements regulate or ban the use of landmines and explosive
remnants of war. These instruments are part of international humanitarian law. International
human rights law protects the rights of persons affected by these weapons.
The United Nations engagement in mine action is guided by relevant international
law. It actively promotes full adherence to and compliance by States and parties
to armed conflict, where applicable, with relevant treaties and international instruments,
in particular the anti-personnel mine ban treaty. It is the policy of the United
Nations to contribute to help to ensure compliance with relevant resolutions and
international legal norms and standards. Efforts to improve and optimize mine clearance
have been significant.
MQ7 offers world class mission critical non-intrusive scanning technologies across
complex commercial concepts, physical and logistical environments where high value
programmes and special projectsrequire a unique solution in the protection of humanitarian
causes. Although this MQ7 system/device is specifically designed for landmine and
IED detection, the system can be scaled-up and re-configured to identify other organic
and inorganic items that are targeted to be identified.
