At Pegotec, we’re proud to partner with NGO Humanity & Inclusion to combat landmines. Together, we developed the “HI – EO Reference App”, a mobile tool aiding landmine clearance, especially in Laos, an area heavily contaminated by cluster munitions.
Since its 1982 inception, Humanity & Inclusion has relentlessly aided disabled and vulnerable individuals. They target contexts of poverty, exclusion, conflict, and disaster. Moreover, they are pivotal to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and the Cluster Munition Coalition. Thus, their work crucially advocates for banning dangerous devices and researching their human impact.
The aftermath of unexploded ordnances has deeply scarred Laos since the first U.S. bombings over half a century ago during the Vietnam War. Over 50,000 victims have fallen prey to these devices, a number that Humanity & Inclusion has been tirelessly working to curtail. Partnering with local communities and deploying mine clearance experts, the NGO works to clear contaminated land, destroy lingering devices, and raise awareness of the associated dangers.
To optimize the effectiveness of field experts, Pegotec collaborated with Humanity & Inclusion to create the HI – EO Reference App. This digital solution replaces a cumbersome physical reference guide previously used for identifying different types of Explosive Ordnances (EO). Now, with the EO Reference App, experts can swiftly access critical information directly from their mobile devices, improving efficiency and safety on the ground.
Indeed, our collaboration with Humanity & Inclusion on the EO Reference App showcases Pegotec’s commitment to using advanced technology for real-world issues. Our dedication to mobile tech drives innovation and safety. Ultimately, we strive to eradicate the threat of unexploded ordnances, demonstrating our belief in technology as a tool for positive change.
