HeroRATs: Sniffing Out Landmines and Tuberculosis

34 HeroRAT teams are currently deployed in Mozambique. They are accredited according International Mine Action Standards (IMAS), just like mine detection dogs. HeroRATS are cheaper to breed, to feed, to train, to maintain and to transport. They are lightweight, and therefore do not set off landmines by stepping on them. The use of HeroRATS speeds up humanitarian landmine clearance and reduces operational costs.
