Mechanical Mine Clearance System Market By Mode Of Operation (Market Analysis, Remote Controlled, Manual Controlled), By Equipment (Lightweight (Upto 5 Tons), Medium Weight (5 Tons To 20 Tons), Heavy Weight (More Than 20 Tons) ) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016 - 2024

Demining is one of the most serious concerns faced worldwide, leading to several casualties every year. According to the United Nations Department of Human Affairs (UNDHA), there are more than 100 million mines in 68 countries around the world that pose significant risks to people.

As a result, the detection and removal or destruction of battlefield debris, particularly mines, is the most important requirement for any land or region to be used again. These operations require a large amount of time and effort and increase the risk of casualties. Subsequently, mechanical mine clearance systems have been gaining significant traction over solely manual methods over the course of time.

A mechanical mine clearance system refers to heavy equipment designed to detonate the underlying mines by passing over them. The equipment is designed to withstand the mines' explosion with minimal damage to the equipment. This makes this equipment highly effective over conventional manual detection methods.

In addition, this mine clearance equipment is available in both manual and remote-controlled configurations. This further ensures the safety of the demining personnel. These pieces of equipment are loaded with additional tools, such as flails and tillers, that are loaded to detonate the underlying mines.

Mechanical mine clearance equipment is typically available in the following configurations:

  • Flails
  • Tillers
  • Rollers
  • Combined
  • Dual Tool Capacity
