Summary
The dangers posed by over 80 million landmines emplaced worldwide are the subject of much discussion. You expressed concern over the threat of landmines to U.S. troops as they carry out their mission in Bosnia-Herzegovina Landmines, especially those of low-metallic content, have been used extensively by all warring factions in the former Republic of Yugoslavia, and 5 to 7 million mines are estimated to be in the region. Between April 1992 and June 1995-prior to the deployment of U.S. troops to the former Republic-there were 174 landmine incidents involving U.N. Peacekeeping Forces, which included 204 casualties and 20 deaths. In response to your request, this report addresses (1) how the Army's AN/PSS-12 portable mine detector performed in detecting low-metallic mines in tests conducted prior to procurement, (2) the nature of the landmine threat in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and (3) the AN/PSS-12's potential effectiveness there
