Army upgrading ground-penetrating radar system for detecting IEDs

Counter-land mine experts at Chemring Sensors and Electronics Systems (CSES) in Dulles, Va., will upgrade a ground-penetrating radar system to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs) buried in roadways.

Counter-land mine experts at Chemring Sensors and Electronics Systems (CSES) in Dulles, Va., will upgrade a ground-penetrating radar system to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs) buried in roadways. Officials of the Army Contracting Command-Aberdeen Proving Ground in Alexandria, Va., announced plans to ask CSES, formerly Non-Intrusive Technology Inc. (NIITEK), to make engineering changes to the CSES Husky Mounted Detection System (HMDS), a counter-IED system able to detect underbelly IEDs and antitank land mines buried in primary and secondary roads. The system is a combination of the CSES VISOR 2500 ground-penetrating radar and Husky vehicle from Critical Solutions International in Carrollton, Texas. The HMDS helps the Army quickly clear roadways of anti-tank mines, roadside bombs, and other IEDs. The CSES VISOR 2500 ground-penetrating radar detects metallic and non-metallic explosive hazards, pressure plates, and antitank mines. It combines advanced, real-time automatic-target-recognition algorithms, integrated metallic and non-metallic threat detection, automatic precision marking, and software in a ruggedized, supportable package.
