VMR3G “Minehound” – Dual-Sensor Detector

Dual-Sensor Detector with Graphic Display for Metal and Metal-Free Objects

  • Dual-sensor search head with metal detector (MD) and ground-penetrating radar (GPR)
  • Integrated graphic display for simplified operation
  • Mechanical design with high-quality carbon telescoping carrying bar
  • High sensitivity for high-efficiency soil compensation
  • Detection of metal and metal-free objects such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs)
  • Easily noticeable alarm indication (audio/visual/vibration)
  • Device settings available in numerous languages

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.

Suitable for following searches ...

Mines :  Suited for mine detection. Thanks to maximum sensitivity, also reacts to mines with low or no metal content.
UXO* :  Ideal for shallow searching for all types of metal (e. g. unexploded ordnances, submunitions, etc.).
IEDs :  Thanks to a ground-penetrating radar, it is ideal for efficiently searching for objects with low or no metal content.
