During the last years were uncovered number of important finds, mostly form metal detector prospections. Into the methodology of prospection and presumable uncovering of other military objects are use wide ranges of GIS analyses, aerial and field prospections. Within this topic of interest is the Branche office in Doní Dunajovice incorporated into numbers of international cooperation projects (e. g. Institute of Archaeology in Nitra, RGK Frankfurt am Main).
