By using modern drones given to Ukraine by Danish partners, military service members scan contaminated territories, namely agricultural land, and detect magnetic anomalies. Reconnaissance sappers pass the prepared maps with the coordinates of suspicious sites to demining groups.

In more than two weeks, almost 600 hectares of agricultural lands were inspected by drones, more than 1,500 magnetic anomalies were detected, and 142 corridors with an area of more than 90 hectares were inspected.

Modern technical equipment enables sappers to remotely scan ground areas, air and under water to determine places containing explosive ordnance and other objects posing life risk and requiring special attention and thorough demining actions.
