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