AMULET Vehicle-Mounted Mine Detection System
AMULET Vehicle-Mounted Mine Detection System for EOD and Search Applications has been developed by Cobham.
AMULET is a scalable modular detection system which is capable of detecting buried Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), Anti-Tank (AT) mines and other Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) in a wide variety of soil conditions from a mounted vehicle platform. The AMULET detection system has been designed to be low size, weight and power, as well as to be easy to train and easy to use. It is suitable for fitting to a wide variety of host platforms from small robotic systems through to the largest of Mine-Protected Ambush-Resistant (MRAP) vehicles. The vehicle-mounted variant can be rapidly deployed without leaving the safety of the cab, significantly improving the ease of operational deployment. It can also be automatically stowed when not in use, restoring the mobility of the host platform to close to that achieved without the system fitted.
AMULET QuadPack. The AMULET system incorporates Cobham’s scalable ‘QuadPack’ Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) modules, which allows detection swathe widths from as small as 0.5m to as large as 4m. The sensor system is optimised for low size, weight and power, as well as interoperability with other vehicle mounted systems. The QuadPack GPR technology is based upon Cobham’s highly successful MINEHOUND VMR3 dual-sensor handheld detector.
