Defense To detect improvised explosive devices
The evaluation of this new capability, if successful, could lead to upgrades of the U.S. Army's Husky Mounted Detection System inventory.
CEO Michael Flowers said: "I am delighted that we have received this contract that will support an operational assessment by the US Army. These systems, which incorporate enhanced detection technology developed by Roke and Chemring Technology Solutions in the UK, offer a valuable upgrade to the existing HMDS fleet.
"The HMDS, a Program of Record for the US Army, is a key part of our long term growth strategy and the continued progression of this capability is encouraging."
The HMDS provides soldiers with enhanced capabilities to detect improvised explosive devices and antitank mines along roads with increased operations tempo. ■
