Handheld EODS

The dual-sensor hand-held EODS Vallon MINEHOUND VMR3 incorporates Cobham’s leading-edge Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, protecting lives and delivering enhanced detection capabilities for the most demanding Counter-IED and mine clearance requirements.

MINEHOUND is a state-of-the-art hand-held Explosive Ordnance Detector (EOD), based on a successful joint-development between Cobham and Vallon GmbH in Germany. It is a COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) product which combines Cobham’s leading-edge Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology with a Vallon metal detector (MD). This dual-sensor approach provides advanced high-performance detection of metallic, minimum-metal and non-metallic threats, including mines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

The MINEHOUND EOD is both robust and lightweight with an intuitive audio and visual user-interface, and low power consumption for extended use. It is a proven  and fielded product, widely used in military environments, as well as for humanitarian de-mining.
