We have seeded a comprehensive minefield consisting of 150 diverse explosive remnants of war buried at systematic varying depths located at the OSU Center for Fire and Explosives, Forensic Investigation, Training and Research range in Pawnee, Oklahoma. The purpose of this field is to serve as a resource and benchmark to the humanitarian mine community, allowing researchers to thoroughly test methods and instruments for landmine and UXO detection.
