Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), unveils its new CIMS (Counter IED and Mine Suite) – an integrated suite of sensors, for protection of tactical maneuvering vehicles. CIMS will be displayed at the 2014 Annual Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Meeting & Exposition in Washington DC, from October 13-15, 2014 (IAI North America – Booth #2039).
Although mines and IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) are not new to the war scene, the use of these devices has become a matter of concern for modern armies both in regular and assymetric warfare. The CIMS suite was designed under the premise that no one sensor can provide the adequate probability of detection and low false-alarm rate required by today’s operational needs.
The CIMS suite detects both surface and underground IEDs, mines, and roadside bombs, and consists of an ADS – Above-surface Detection System, and MIDS – underground Mine and IED Detection System. The ADS includes a groundbreaking side-looking SAR radar, high-resolution optical detection system and an infrared multispectral investigation system. MIDS comprises a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and a magnetic detector. […]
