Where manual deminers are hampered by obstacles such as thick vegetation, compact soil, collapsed buildings, trenches, metal contamination from fighting or household refuse, HALO has pioneered the use of machines to support demining activities. 

Over the years we have developed processes for using machines to clear both anti-personnel and anti-tank minefields and HALO now has over two hundred mechanical assets working on programmes around the world.   

HALO is at the forefront of developing standard operating procedures for use in mechanical demining applications. Our expertise in this field has been noted by the US Department of Defense who now consider us a key research and development partner for their humanitarian demining wing.
