Autonomous Mine Detection System (AMDS), a counter-improvised explosive device system, provides standoff detection, marking, and neutralizing capability of explosive hazards, booby-traps and unexploded ordnance in complex and urban terrain in support of route clearance operations. AMDS is a mission equipment package mounted on current and programmed man-portable unmanned ground vehicles organic to infantry and engineer units.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
AMDS detects, marks and neutralizes explosive hazards; operates in complex and urban terrain, including confined areas and subterranean environments; minimizes warfighter workload; enhances the rate of advance; and moves the warfighter out of the blast zone.
Scans a path with a ground penetrating radar and metal detector, marks the explosive hazards detected and neutralizes the explosive hazards while undercover
