Minewolf - Mini MineWolf on Jordanian/Syrian Border

MineWolf Systems AG : 31 August, 2007  (Application Story)
Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) has purchased its 3rd Mini MineWolf for humanitarian demining operations. The mechanical demining machine will be deployed along the Jordan-Syria border where an estimated 67,000 anti -personnel (AP) and anti Tank (AT) mines were deployed along a more than 100km mine-belt before 1973 (source: Landmine Monitor). The remote-controlled unit complements a MineWolf large-scale demining machine already working in Jordan since August 2006, helping to clear over 1.1 million square meters along the Jordan-Israel border. Since 2006 the Mini MineWolf has been deployed in 3 countries, clearing a total of over 2.5 million square meters.
The MineWolf technology has been put to the test in Jordan, achieving reliable and robust operation in challenging mid-summer desert conditions: 200,000 square meters cleared by NPA in the Wadi Araba region during July in 51C (124 F) heat with extreme dust. The Mini MineWolf is specially designed for rapid deployment to hard-to-reach areas and challenging terrain, gradients and environmental conditions.

As a signatory to the Ottawa Convention, Jordan seeks to be the first Arab country to be declared free of mines by 2009.
