The objective of the project is to deliver modern equipment to the Canadian Armed Forces to support the full spectrum of operations at the battle group level by accurately and consistently locating explosive hazards and other man-made objects of military interest.


The majority of items to be acquired by this project will be met by current commercial-off-the-shelf technology. Few new systems or subsystems will need to be designed. The project requirements will cover four functional areas: stand-off detection tools, search viewing aids, general purpose search tools and an analysis capability.
