Planning Factors in Explosive Ordnance Clearance
Keywords:Exercise range, Explosive ordnance clearance, ammunition
AbstractDownsizing of armies brings the effort to return military premises and facilities back to civilian utilisation. Explosive ordnance Clearance (EOC) is an indispensable phase in the process of decommissioning of exercise ranges. Local auhorities who take over the former military areas, require safe and clean land without any environmental hazard. The left behind amunition represents the main risk. As a rule Army is responsible to make any procedures to achieve this requirement. Planning of those procedures is a decisive, even sensitive factor. Local Authorities insist on the high tempo of clearance process while units responsible for performing it have to resist of any pressure to speed up thjeir works. This article will bring facts based on the praxis of clearance woks on the former exrcise range Milovice, done from 1993 until 2001.
