We are happy to reveal the detection capabilities of our patented drone-based V2Mag magnetic gradiometer system in relation to small UXO and landmines found in modern and recent war zones.

A selection of UXO and landmines (”targets”) with ferrous contents of ∼0-2.5kg was laid out in an area covering 120 x 20m.

All of the ferrous targets were found and hence documents the strong capability of the V2Mag system for detecting various kinds of small UXO and landmines despite a small ferrous content. The ability of theV2Mag to fly close to ground level (<0.5m terrain following if needed) further enhances its potential usein pre-clearance scanning and post-clearance scanning of former war zones, even in complex terrains.
