AARDVARK LANDMINE CLEARANCE
THE MOST EFFECTIVE LANDMINE CLEARING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD
Aardvarks multi-role dedicated landmine clearance flail, the AMCS, effectively clears anti-tank and anti-personnel landmines, either by detonation or disruption and operates effectively in the majority of terrain and environmental conditions encountered in minefields throughout the world.
Aardvark has been responsible for a range of highly successful mechanical minefield clearance machines, which are currently operating around the globe.
All Aardvark’s systems are designed and built as dual-role Anti-Tank and Anti-Personnel landmine clearance vehicles.
Aardvark maintains a policy of continuous machine improvement in all areas, including engine performance, flail depth, flail control and contouring, steering driver safety, driver comfort, navigation and maintenance – all of which make the Aardvark and its latest variant, the AMCS, the most effective landmine clearing system available.
In all Aardvark’s machines, total safety of the crew is assured. Aardvark is exceptionally proud of the fact that no crew member of an Aardvark has ever been injured or killed in mine clearing operations.
Mines come in many forms and some are designed for specific targets. The variety of types, size and mechanisms are only limited by the technology available. Today, they range from simple pressure mechanisms to sophisticated seismic activated devices.
They can incorporate anti-handling devices, booby traps and self-destruct / neutralising mechanisms.
Aardvark has developed systems such as the SMCS(Surface Mine Clearance System) and the Airfield variant of the AMCS to be able to clear Scatter-able munitions from hard, flat surfaces such as runways, taxiways and administration areas.
