Abstract

Currently, the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and unexploded ordnance (UXO) clean-up community are supported by three locally developed and maintained systems. The Unexploded Ordnance Site Management Model (UXOSMM) is being maintained by the Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (EODTECHDIV). Ordnance Technical Management System (OTMS) is maintained by United States Army Engineer Division, Huntsville (USAEDH). In a functionally similar undertaking, landmine elimination in Host Nations is provided by the Humanitarian Demining Operations Geographic Information System (HDOGIS). HDOGIS is a Special Operations Command (SOCOM) automated tool currently used by host nation forces in Eritrea and Ethiopia. It was developed by the US SOCOM Central (US SOCCENT) to assist nations in eliminating landmines and mine fields. HDOGIS was designed to record, track and manage information associated with Humanitarian Demining Operations (HDO)–e.g., minefield and mine incident locations, personnel training, availability of resources to support demining operations, and plans for conducting operations. Spatial information–e.g., mine incident and/or minefield locations–are presented in a geographic view or map.
