Armtrac has also been in negotiations with the Philippines Army for a Bomb Search and Clearance Vehicle termed locally as a “Vehicle Mounted Mine Detector (VMMD)”. Following an MOU and Special Implementing Arrangement (SIA) signed at Government level, the Bid was awarded on 5 January 2021 and contract signed in April 2021 for 4 x VMMDs for delivery in 2021/22. The VMMD, based on the Armtrac 100-350 Mk2, provides the capability to accommodate two operators within the armoured cabin to operate a vegetation cutter on the rear robotic arm to clear high vegetation on roadsides and a detector on the front robotic arm to detect the IEDs together with a paint marker to indicate the position. A small excavator bucket, fitted to the rear robotic arm in place of the vegetation cutter, allows some excavation of earth for exposure of buried EO.

Armtrac manufactures quality, safe and value for money mechanical equipment to counter the threat from Explosive Ordnance (EO) including landmines, Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and Booby Traps. As an ISO 9001:2015 company, Armtrac provides quality mechanical solutions using remote controlled technology and on some of the larger machines, an operator’s cabin to provide a “bird’s eye” view of clearance operations. All equipments use hydraulic quick hitch couplings to attach a variety of EOD and engineering toolkits quickly. Armtrac products can not only mitigate the effects of EO but also operate in secondary engineering & construction roles as well. Armtrac prides itself on producing innovative solutions to a variety of different threats and can design and manufacture for bespoke requirements.
