DTMD (Dual Technology Mine Detector) is a hand-held sensor system combining a conventional metal detector of high sensitivity and a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for detection of buried landmines. The equipment has been specially developed by L&T for military applications as well as for humanitarian de-mining operations.
The conventional metal detector provides audio alarms on presence of metallic objects. The Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been integrated with the metal detector for detection of non-metallic mines which are increasingly being deployed to avoid detection. The equipment is designed to provide audio and video indications on presence of both metallic and non-metallic mines in different type of soil with very low probability of false alarms.
