ERW Global Threat

Despite the rapidly changing face of modern warfare, the ghosts of historical battles still linger in various areas across the world in the form of Explosive Remnants of War.

Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) are explosive munitions left behind after a conflict has ended; they include unexploded artillery shells, grenades, mortars, rockets, air-dropped bombs, and cluster munitions. Under the international legal definition, ERW consists of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) and Abandoned Explosive Ordnance (AXO), but does not include mines.

Weapons that fail to detonate as intended become UXO. When these unstable explosive devices are left behind after conflicts they pose dangers for the civilian populace or remaining troops similar to landmines.

AXO is explosive ordnance that has not been utilised during an armed conflict which has been abandoned by the armed group or military that originally controlled it. It may or may not have been primed, fuzed, armed, or otherwise prepared for use.
