MineHound VMR3G

General Information

The VMR3G "Minehound" dual-sensor detector is internationally proven.

It is ideal for the simultaneous detection of metal and metal-free objects. This is a decisive advantage e.g. for the detection of IEDs.

The integrated color graphic display enables user-friendly operation and shortens the time for an initial training as well as the familiarization after a longer period of inactivity. The display provides an overview of all parameters and signals of the metal detector (MD) and ground-penetrating radar (GPR).

The visualization of the ground-penetrating radar alarm offers easy to read depth information on the detected object. In addition, the device settings are available in numerous languages.

The VMR3G is also characterized by its mechanical features: The use of carbon and glass fiber-reinforced plastic makes it extremely rugged and durable. It meets high standards for military mine clearance and humanitarian demining.
