Abstract
This two-part document describes the Vehicle Mounted Ordnance Detector (VMOD) which has been designed and manufactured for DRES by Pylon Electronic Development company. The specific implementation described in these documents relates to a Metallic Mine Detection System (MMiDS) used for the ROMMiDS system in JINGOSS. VMOD and MMiDS may be used interchangeabley in this document. Most of the references shall be to VMOD, any references specific to an implementation shall be explicitly mentioned. The VMOD is designed for use as a quality assurance tool in clearing artillery ranges of ordnances, or for route proofing in the MMiDS configuration. The VMOD is a stable mon-magnetic trailer/sled assembly which has detection electronics and associated hardware and software. As it is towed over the site to be cleared, or the route to be checked, the VMOD periodically generates electric currents which create magnetic fields in metal objects such as ordnances in the ground. When the VMOD transmit current is turned off, the magnetic field within the ordnance collapses, creating eddy currents. These eddy currents induce voltages in the VMOD's receive coils. The VMOD analyses the receiver voltages and marks each ordnance location by marking the ground over the ordnance with paint, foam or diesel fuel.
