Project details

Explosive Ordnance Investigation using DTM


  • Explosive ordnance risk assessment through combined source and aerial photo evaluation.
  • Basis: Analysis of 13 aerial photographs, digital terrain model (DTM), in-depth historical research (especially Red Army documents from the Central Archive of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (CAMO).

Area size

  • 28 km train path.


  1. On 44% of the route, there is a risk of encountering unexploded bombs. Here, one must also expect to find blind shells as well as hand-held ordnance and ammunition that have been left behind or buried.
  2. According to the construction guidelines for explosive ordnance disposal, there is a need for further investigation in the designated areas (category 2). To clarify the further procedure, we recommend consulting the responsible explosive ordnance disposal service, a specialist planner for explosive ordnance clearance or a specialist company for explosive ordnance disposal. The latter must be licensed in accordance with Section 7 of the Explosives Act (SprengG) and have the appropriate personnel with a certificate of competence in accordance with Section 20 of the Explosives Act (SprengG).
  3. No further action is required for the remaining route sections (category 1).
