Schiebel has presented its new generation hand-held COMID Compact Mine Detector at the DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) in London.
The mine detector incorporates advanced technology whilst retaining all of the capabilities of Schiebel’s mine detection product range with the most operational benefits possible, the company announced today.
Schiebel’s latest mine detector is characterized by easy handling in static search, quick calibration and improved visual and acoustic support functions, helping the user to implement the required actions quickly and safely.
The COMID is able to consistently locate both large and small targets with precision and ease. Simplified pin-pointing is made possible with different audio and visual signals for the left and right halves of the search head, aiming at maximum support with minimal training effort.
Furthermore, the tone modulation varies depending on the size and geometry of as well as the distance to the detected object.
Always in the visual field, an LED display, integrated in the search head, minimizes the risk of distraction.
Enhanced ground and saltwater compensation eliminates the difficulties of the terrain, helping the deminer to focus on his essential work in all types of military and humanitarian operations.
The most recent ground calibration is retained for a steady workflow. The COMID design is totally compatible with its ATMID and AN/19-2 predecessors.
Search head and electronics card / unit can easily be replaced for cost-efficient upgrade of older systems. The addition of an infrared data port allows the quick update with new software versions.
Hans Georg Schiebel, owner and chairman of Schiebel said, “Wherever mines or unexploded ordnance impact, our detectors will be there to provide our customers safe conduct.”
