IMSMA contains information on Agency activities, collected in full accordance with operational SOPs, and has an ability to meet other information needs of mine action management. IMSMA reflects corresponding information on the map through the GIS functionality. New reports allowed counting of the contribution of various clearance methods (Manual clearance, Mine Detecting Dogs and Mechanical Demining Machines support, UXO clearance), thoroughly follow-up disposal of explosive devices, and either in-situ or in demolition area.
