Danish drone company is developing drones to detect coastal mines

Danish company DTU SPACE and UAV manufacturer - SKY-WATCH have jointly developed a device for detecting unexploded landmines on the coast of Denmark, making it cheaper and safer to build offshore wind farms in the future. Research and development work on this technology is ongoing.

According to estimates by the Danish Navy, approximately 40,000 unexploded landmines from World War II are still buried deep in the silt of the ocean floor. Every time energy companies plan to build new offshore wind farms, they first need to remove these old ammunition, which is a very dangerous, expensive and time-consuming job. Last year alone, energy companies dealt with 40 massive minefields during the construction of the new RACE BANK wind farm off the coast of Norfolk, England.

Finding mines or other military waste In the newly developed UAV solution, the UAV hangs a model aircraft carrying 1-2 ultra-sensitive magnetometers, which can detect old ammunition and other military waste by detecting magnetic field fluctuations. Using GPS navigation technology, drones can more easily spot the exact location of unexploded mines.
