Research Institution
The Army's SBIR Topic A04-095, Remotely Controlled Neutralization Techniques for Mine Clearance, seeks a system that is able to effectively neutralizations mines, via remote control, in a timely manner. DE Technologies Inc has a suite of munitions that have demonstrated the required neutralization performance. These munitions embody the technology found in ESMB, Mongoose, GSTAMIDS, and other programs. They are highly effective and neutralize the mine in less than a second. DE Technologies Inc herein proposes to investigate the adaptation of these proven, small munitions to a remote controlled vehicle for the delivery and precision alignment. Much of the proposed technology is commercial, off-the-shelf hardware. DET envisions a system that would cost substantially less than a thousand dollars for each deployment and neutralization. This system could also be applied to the neutralization of Improvised Explosive Devices or road-side bombs.
