ETMTS-2 – Handheld Mine Detection System

ETMTS-2 (Handheld Mine Detection System), metal detector (Electromagnetic Induction-EMI) and ground penetrating radar (Ground Penetrating Radar-GPR) is a new generation mine detector that can operate in difficult military conditions.

The device has two modes, detection and analysis mode. In detection mode, audible warnings about buried object detection are given to the user with headphones or external speakers, and visual information is given via the LCD screen. Thus, the user can also make his own subjective decision by evaluating the warnings created by the system. In order to ensure the reliability of the system, internal tests are carried out at the beginning and during use, communication with the sensors, system warnings and battery level information are transferred to the user on the screen. ETMTS-2 can communicate with the outside world via Ethernet when necessary. The user can detect metallic and non-metallic mines and handmade explosives (IED) during the scans on the progress route, and can view the suspected area.

Developed in accordance with MIL-STD 810G and MIL-STD 461F military standards, the device can reveal the radar image of the underground with the high-gain planar antenna, and can detect metals with sensitivity with the optimally designed search coil.
