Vallon is bringing its Counter Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) detector to DefExpo in Goa under the 'Make in India' programme to support the armed forces and security forces, Cobham announced on 22 March.

Cobham and Vallon have been working together to supply over 9,500 C-IED detectors worldwide. Cobham delivers a wide range of vehicle-mounted and handheld sensor technologies to combat IEDs, Vallon has developed and manufactures the Minehound dual sensor detector.

The Minehound is capable of detecting metal and metal-free mines and IEDs. It uses ground penetrating radar and a search head with metal detector. Weighing 4kg, the detector uses rechargeable lithium polymer batteries. An LED bar-graph displays the detection signal, and audio signal is delivered via headset or the inbuilt loudspeaker.

Cobham continues to work with Vallon and the UK government to develop C-IED technologies.
