Interchangeable handheld IED Detector

Chemring Technology Solutions : 28 April, 2015  (New Product)
The GroundHunter MHDS from Chemring has been launched to provide IED detection capabilities with interchangeable heads for wire and metal detection
Interchangeable handheld IED Detector

Chemring Technology has launched GroundHunter MHDS, the world’s first hand-held IED detector with interchangeable sensor heads for wire and metal detection.

GroundHunter MHDS (Multi-head Detection System) supports multiple sensor heads to enable search teams to respond quickly to changing scenarios, while the common user interface significantly reduces training burden. The lightweight system has a compact folding design, and allows multiple heads to be carried by a single operator for rapid reconfiguration.

Currently offering two sensor heads, the CWD100 and MD100, GroundHunter MHDS has a future-proof design that will be compatible with future sensor heads. As technologies become available, GroundHunter MHDS will have the ability to address new threats.

The CWD100 command wire detector head identifies command wires that are over 20 metres in length, independent of their orientation. Incorporating its own transmitter and receiver, the CWD100 eliminates the requirement for supporting infrastructure. This reduces the total cost of ownership compared with traditional command wire detection products. Using pulsed induction techniques, the MD100 head detects both ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Ian Redwood, Product Manager at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: “Our history of developing sensors and systems has enabled us to create GroundHunter MHDS, which delivers multiple functions to help military teams react faster and more flexibly to the threats they find themselves facing. GroundHunter MHDS provides a weight and power saving compared to carrying two detectors, as well as being easy to pack and carry.”
