UADamage: AI demining tech clearing Ukrainian land

Ukrainian artificial intelligence developers from UADamage, who are part of the Brave1 cluster, have created technology to accelerate the identification of mines, projectiles, and explosion craters, where dangerous fragments may also be present.

"The developers connect artificial intelligence to sensors. It identifies and classifies data about objects not only on the surface of the earth but also deep below it, automatically mapping them. This speeds up demining by tens of times, making the process overall safer for people," said Mykhailo Fedorov, the Minister of Digital Transformation.

 

 

The UADamage technology operates in three stages:

The first stage involves strategic planning. The team uses satellite images and cadastral data to determine the extent of landmine contamination.

The second stage is visual inspection for the presence of mines and explosive objects. Drones equipped with cameras survey the area, and artificial intelligence detects hazardous objects.

The third stage involves inspection underground and in the grass, using various sensors.

"The most challenging aspect of demining, besides the quantity of mines, is that they can be buried at significant depths and are not detectable by metal detectors," noted Fedorov.
