The VALLON-VMH3CS in action in Colombia
After more than three years of humanitarian and military demining work, several million square meters of land were handed over to the population.
Attacks on the civilian population were repeatedly carried out during the conflict with the guerrillas, paramilitaries and criminal gangs. The 50 years of armed conflicts were mostly sparked by disputes over the cultivation and sale of drugs.
In the northern part of Colombia (in the regions Bolivar and Sucre) several million square meters of mine free land have now been handed over to the population. This land is to be used for agricultural purposes.
Many of the areas polluted with mines as well as munitions and IEDs are located in inaccessible jungle. Explosive ordnance disposal services must therefore rely on a dependable metal detector that works perfectly even in constantly changing environmental conditions and meets the highest demands. Heat, extremely high humidity, rain and other environmental influences must not have any effect on optimal detection. The robust and reliable VALLON metal detector VMH3CS with LED, acoustic and vibration alarm has proven itself here for many years.
