Armtrac Demining, based in Cambridgeshire UK is participating in IDEX 2019 on International Golden Group’s Stand No 04-C20. The Company manufactures quality, safe and value for money mechanical equipment to counter the threat from Explosive Ordnance (EO) including landmines, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and Booby Traps. As an ISO 9001:2015 company, Armtrac provides quality mechanical solutions using remote controlled technology and on some of the larger machines, an operator’s cabin to provide a “bird’s eye” view of clearance operations. All demining equipments use hydraulic quick hitch couplings to attach a variety of EOD and engineering toolkits quickly. Armtrac products can not only mitigate the effects of EO but also operate in secondary engineering & construction roles as well.
Current sales during 2018 included supplying 8 x A100-350 Mk2s to Saudi Arabia with Armtrac’s C-IED Mine Roller System on the front and a clearance toolkit(Tiller/Flail) on the rear should a victim operated device be encountered on an intended route. Alternatively, a Ground Probing Radar (GPR) detection suite can be mounted on the rear once the threat has been establish with the roller system. The A100 vehicle can operate toolkits or detection equipment in both directions with the operator facing in the direction of travel because the operator’s seat & controls can swivel through 180 degrees.
The Armtrac 20T Mk2 C-IED Robot is a remote controlled Small (Heavy) Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) designed to undertake high risk investigation and De-mining/C-IED clearance operations. This robust and flexible robot is fitted with a diesel engine that can operate for several hours without refuelling and can therefore support lengthy De-mining & C-IED operations. Four of these A20Ts are operating in Colombia to support operations to clear terrorist IEDs in challenging terrain. The Robot can be fitted with surface and sub-surface EO disposal equipment, detection systems (including GPR) and an advanced manipulator for investigating and analysing the threat. Armtrac prides itself on producing innovative solutions to a variety of different threats and can design and manufacture for bespoke requirements.
