NATO has extended Schiebel’s mine detector contract. Under the now extended contract with the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), Schiebel will deliver 900 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.
Schiebel has been under a contract with the NSPA since 2017, delivering 1,700 units of the AN-19/2 Mine Detecting Set thus far. In October 2019, the contract was extended with the substantial order of additional 900 units that are delivered now.
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 the U.S. Army (designated AN/PSS-12) and most NATO countries. Due to its modular design it provides maximum flexibility to the user as well as ease of maintenance.
