NATO to receive mine-detection equipment from Schiebel

18th March 2020 - 12:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


NATO has extended its contract for the AN-19/2 Mine Detecting Set from Schiebel, to include an extra 900 units on top of the 1,700 units ordered as part of an earlier July 2017 agreement.

Schiebel announced in an 18 March statement that the equipment will be used by the alliance for military and humanitarian de-mining.

The AN-19/2 has a modular design which enables flexible application. It is the standard mine detector for a range of western militaries including the US Army.

The contract is overseen by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA).
