The Demining Drone is an Explosive Ordnance Disposal drone that is exclusively used by IDAP aid workers in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Laws of War DLC.

Overview Edit

  • Roles:
    • Explosive ordnance disposal
« Engineers of the International Development & Aid Project took a standard Utility Drone and modified it for highly effective mine clearance operations. This improvised drone uses a powerful sensor ring to detect mines as it flies low above the ground. It then releases one of its 4 demining charges from a higher altitude in order to safely detonate mines or other types of ordnance below.
Field Manual

Design Edit

The Demining Drone is miniature VTOL-capable hexacopter that is small enough to be carried in a backpack.


It is primarily designed to dispose of land mines from the air by dropping light charges on top or near them in order to safely trigger them from a distance.

Whenever a charge is deployed, it creates a loud whistling noise that can be easily heard. The charges themselves also emit a coloured trail of smoke to make it highly visible from afar.

To prevent damage to the airframe itself, it is recommended that the charges only be dropped at a minimum safe altitude of 25 m and above.

Sensors Edit

Exclusively designed for mine disposal, the Demining Drone has only one unique sensor available:

Mine Detector Edit

The Demining Drone is able to sense the location of buried landmines and IEDs within a 360 degree radius and at a maximum distance of 50 m from the drone's current position.

Unlike other types of sensors, there is no azimuth or elevation restriction.

Trivia Edit

  • The Demining Drone is inspired by a Dutch-made concept UAV model that was designed by the Micro Air Vehicle Lab (MAVLab), an educational institution based at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
  • Along with the Utility Drone, the Demining Drone is currently one of the only two rotary-wing based air assets in ArmA 3 that utilise six rotors.
  • It is the first vehicle in the entire series to be designed exclusively for carrying out EOD duties.
