Schiebel delivers mine detectors to Ecuador

18 January 2018 – Under a contract with the Ecuadorian Ministry of National Defense, the Austrian manufacturer Schiebel delivers 35 units of the ATMIDTM All Terrain Mine Detector, the ultimate in mine clearance technology.

The order for the ATMIDTM was awarded in late September and delivery to the Ecuadorian Land Forces was made in December 2017. The ATMIDTM features dynamic continuous wave detection while retaining the proven und trusted design of the AN-19/2, the world’s most widely used mine detector for both humanitarian and military purposes.

Suitable for fast, accurate demining in all climates and terrains, the ATMIDTM is highly effective in detecting minimum metal-content land mines – even in areas with severe laterite conditions and with a high content of iron or aluminum oxides.
