About

Cambodia has millions of  active landmines left from the Pol Pot regime of the 1970's that cause catastrophic results to innocent people.

The current demining machines are very expensive and destroy the environment. I have been working with several demining experts to develop a much simpler and less energy intensive method of exterminating these deadly devices. I need help to complete the machine with remote controls and better hydraulics to get the machine tested by the Cambodian government. My hope is that once this machine is tested it can be mass produced for worldwide use.   

Risks and challenges

Working in Cambodia is difficult due to the lack of specialized parts needed. Once I acquire the necessary funding, I can contract with an engineering firm there to secure the parts needed, instead of trying to locate components on the fly. Since this is a unique machine, there will be adjustments and refinements that take time. That is why I feel the need to hire a professional to get the unit completed in a timely manner.
