Only one KMMCS clears about
30.000 m² per day.
Compared to this more than 10.000
hand-deminers would be needed, to clear the same area
in the same period of time. Statistically about 10 hand-deminers would
be killed or mutilated during their work.
Actually only a small number of hand-deminers is available at the
This means, that a group of about 10 hand-deminers
would need about 2,5 years
for a one day´s job
of the KMMCS.
During the deployment in Mozambique the KMMCS´s costs
- per mine were 8,46 % compared to hand-demining.
- per hectare were 10,5 % compared to hand-demining.
The productivity of the KMMCS in terms of cleared area per one person´s
working time is 197,5 times higher compared to a hand-deminer.
