SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Unexploded ordnance removal teams at New Boston Air Force Station are using a new tool in their mission to rid the station of decades-old bombs, rockets and other potentially hazardous material.

The 23rd Space Operations Squadron has partnered with the Strategic Environmental Research Development Program in a project that should help reveal the identity of objects while they're still underground.

Since July, the SERDP team has been conducting a "metal mapper" test demonstration, the first on an Air Force site, which is designed to differentiate between UXO and cultural debris below ground. If proven, this technology will significantly reduce the number of holes that have to be dug when anomalies are identified during UXO clearing.
