Landmine detection sensor

ALIS is a hand-held dual sensor system, which consists of a metal detector and a ground-penetrating radar (GPR). The most unique feature of ALIS is its visualiza- tion function of the metal detector and GPR. Operators can easily identify buried mines on the visualized image.
The full features of a state-of-the-art metal detector are available, for example the soil compensation function and the pinpointing capability. The GPR antennas are integrated into search head together with metal detector coils. The control unit holds all the electronics and a rechargeable battery. The color LCD display provides the survey results both from the metal detector and the GPR as images. Audio alert is also available for the metal detector indication.
