The team of scientists, which includes the Head of the Life Safety Research, Fire Engineering and Electrical Engineering Research Department of the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, Oleksandr Shmereho received a patent for a utility model of the device for localization of explosives.
Localization of the explosive devices’ detonation is necessary during demining works to reduce the risk of material damage to the surrounding objects in the area of an explosion of the device, as well as injuries or deaths of demining specialists.
The invention makes it possible to locate an explosive device faster than sandbags or earth wells. Compared to explosion-proof and bomb containers, the location of the device is more reliable.
In addition to Oleksandr Shmereho, the team of authors of the invention also includes:
- Prykhodko Yurii;
- Orlov Yurii;
- Zolotukhin Konstiantyn;
- Honchar Valentyn;
- Mykolaiets Dmytro;
