ALIS (Advanced Land Mine Imaging System) is a dual sensor, which combines EMI sensor and GPR. Tohoku University has started the development of ALIS in 2002, and after tests in Cambodian land mine fields, it is now ready to be deployed in mine affected coutries. An evaluation test of ALIS was conducted by CMAC (Cambodian Mine Action Centre) for a certificate to use ALIS in mine fields in October 2018. We trained 4 deminers of CMAC, and they demonstrated that ALIS can images typical landmines in Cambodia including PMN-2 and Type-72 in various types of soil very clearly. The EMI sensor can pin-point the location of the buried objects, and GPR can image the targets, which can be used by the deminer to judge the buried object. The test results was good, and the certificate was given to ALIS in January 2019. Since January 2019, two ALIS systems have been deployed in mine fields in Cambodia. In this paper, we introduce the technical performances of ALIS, and then reports the recent activities of ALIS in Cambodia.
