DRDO India Testing Trawl System To Locate Mines In Battlefield

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has undertaken trials of the indigenously developed Trawl System that could locate mines in the battlefield for Indian Army.

Trawl System is employed for breaching of land mines and creating a vehicle safe lane, through a minefield for the advancing columns of mechanized forces in combat zone.

The equipment consists of Trawl roller, track width mine plough and electro-magnetic device (EMD). The anti-mine system has components that could detect all type of mines usually encountered by the tanks, the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) said in a statement Friday.

The Trawl system underwent blast trials recently which demonstrated the survivability of the equipment, when subjected to successive series of blast directly underneath it. The fieldable prototype of the Trawl system is in final stage and would be shortly ready for conduct of user evaluation trials by the Army.
