Chemring Technology Solutions launched its new GroundHunter Multi-head Detection System (MHDS) hand-held IED detector on 20 April.

GroundHunter is a hand-held IED detector with interchangeable sensor heads for wire and metal detection. The system supports multiple sensor heads to enable quick changes to respond to changing scenarios. It has a common user interface and a compact folding design, so that multiple sensor heads can be carried by a single operator.

The GroundHunter MHDS is currently available with two sensor heads: CWD100 and MD100. The CWD100 command wire detector head identifies command wires that are over 20m in length, independent of their orientation. It incorporates its own transmitter and receiver. The MD100 head uses pulsed induction techniques to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Ian Redwood, product manager, Chemring Technology Solutions, said: 'Our pedigree of developing exceptional sensors and systems has enabled us to create GroundHunter MHDS, which delivers multiple functions to help military teams react faster and more flexibly to the threats they find themselves facing. GroundHunter MHDS provides a weight and power saving compared to carrying two detectors, as well as being easy to pack and carry.'
