Schiebel receives Czech Mimid order

15th July 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Schiebel will supply its Mimid miniature mine detection system to the Czech Ministry of Defence under an order announced on 14 July.

The order will see the company deliver 100 Mimid systems which will be used by the Czech Army to ensure safe movement and protection against improvised explosive devices for sapper and mechanized units in exploration missions. The army already deploys the system.

Mimid is a one-piece, man portable, lightweight mine detector capable of detecting minimal-metal-content mines. The system can be carried by a single soldier; when folded it can be carried on a soldier’s web belt, in a trouser side pocket, or in a rucksack. 

Mimid has a headphone socket and an internal speaker, which automatically mutes when the external headphone is connected. In addition, a visual LED bar indicator is integrated into the housing, providing a constant read-out of the detection signal strength. This bar indicator further enhances the ability to locate the exact centre of the mine
