Explosive Harvesting in Libya

Fenix worked with the ICRC to develop procedures for the conversion of illegal landmines into demolition charges for use in humanitarian EOD operations.  Each process ensured that the weapons could never again be used as they had been originally designed.  Key components such as fragmentation jackets were removed allowing metal components to  be scrapped or recycled, while the fuze wells and main charges were modified - using readily-available components - to allow command initiation for use within humanitarian demilitarization projects.
