Schiebel, renowned for the development and production of a wide range of proven mine detection equipment, presents its new generation hand-held COMIDâ„¢ Compact Mine Detector at the DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) in London.

As always for Schiebel, the interest of its many existing humanitarian demining and military customers was considered a vital element in the research process of the
COMIDâ„¢. Many years of experience and development have produced a mine detector that incorporates advanced technology whilst retaining all of the proven and trusted capabilities of Schiebel's mine detection product range with the most operational benefits possible. With the COMIDâ„¢ Compact Mine Detector, simplicity meets precision.

Schiebel's latest mine detector is characterized by easy handling in static search, quick calibration and improved visual and acoustic support functions, helping the user to implement the required actions quickly and safely. The COMIDâ„¢ is able to consistently locate both large and small targets with precision and ease.

Simplified pin-pointing is made possible with different audio and visual signals for the left and right halves of the search head, aiming at maximum support with minimal training effort. Furthermore, the tone modulation varies depending on the size and geometry of as well as the distance to the detected object. Always in the visual field, an LED display, integrated in the search head, minimizes the risk of distraction.

Enhanced ground and saltwater compensation eliminates the difficulties of the terrain, helping the deminer to focus on his essential work in all types of military and humanitarian operations. The most recent ground calibration is retained for a steady workflow. The COMIDâ„¢ design is totally compatible with its ATMIDâ„¢ and AN/19-2 (U.S. Army designation AN/PSS-12) predecessors. Search head and electronics card / unit can easily be replaced for cost-efficient upgrade of older systems. The addition of an infrared data port allows the quick update with new software versions.

Hans Georg Schiebel, owner and chairman of Schiebel comments, "With the introduction of the COMIDâ„¢, we are continuing to expand our expertise in mine detection technology and our reputation for product effectiveness, service and quality keeps growing.

Wherever mines or unexploded ordnance impact, our detectors will be there to provide our customers safe conduct."
