US army awards USD$26.1 million contract to develop improved Husky Mine Detection Systems (HMDS)

Minelab Electronics, a company renowned for its metal detectors, and an American company NIITEK that makes ground penetrating radar, have partnered together to win a contract to produce a mine sweeping system for US military in two years.

 

The NIITEK® HMDS is a multi-panel high-performance Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system when mounted on manned, blast-resistant vehicles, provides a rapid 3D subsurface visualization of anti-vehicular landlines or any other type of buried explosive hazard.

Minelab’s STMR advanced version system has a dual coil configuration embedded in a rigid 2.2m wide structure and is based on its BiPolar Pulse Induction technology. Its vehicle mounted metal detection system, provides a reliable, effective and fast means of detecting landmines, unexploded ordnance and explosive remnants of war, and has been used in humanitarian demining operations for the past eight years.

The combination of Single Transmit Multiple Receive (STMR) array NIITEK’s radar would allow the system to detect anti-personnel landmines, anti-tank landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices with high probability of detection and low false alarm rates.
