SCHIEBEL RECEIVES MAJOR MINE DETECTOR ORDER FROM NATO

Under a contract with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), the Austrian manufacturer Schiebel will deliver 700 units of the AN-19/2 Mine Detecting Set, one of the world’s most widely used mine detectors for both humanitarian and military purposes.

The AN-19/2 Mine Detecting Set, suitable for fast, accurate demining in all climates and terrains, has served as the standard detector for numerous armies, including most NATO countries.

Due to its modular design it provides maximum flexibility to the user as well as ease of maintenance, some of the reasons that explain the product’s ongoing popularity over decades.
