Unmanned Ground Vehicles. Dok-Ing. MV4

The MV-4 Mine Clearance System, of Dok-Ing,  is a tracked, remote-controlled machine designed to clear all types of Anti-Personnel (AP) mines and UXO-s, and is survivable to all types of Anti-Tank (AT) mines. Due to its small dimensions and maneuverability, it is suitable for demining of house yards, orchards, forest paths, river banks, and other types of terrain that is inaccessible to larger machines. The various operating tools for mine clearance and soil processing destroy even the smallest Anti-Personnel blast pressure mines and the most dangerous types of bouncing fragmentation mines. The machine is remotely controlled from an armored vehicle or from a safe distance. The engine and vital components of the machine are protected by steel plates.

Designed to withstand mine detonations – Being originally designed for one task only – humanitarian demining, MV-4 system is primarily designed for clearance of Anti-Personnel mines, but there is always a possibility of encountering Anti-Tank mines during its operation. The MV-4 strongest ability to withstand Anti-Tank mine detonations has been proved at the Swedish EOD and Demining Center (SWEDEC) in July 2004.

Safety – Being remotely controlled by an operator from a distance of up to 2000 m, MV-4 system has approved record of safety of demining personnel and third parties – no mine accident in more than 15 years of operation

Productivity – Small dimensions, very good maneuverability, high engine power, and low track-ground pressure, allows the MV-4 system to work year round in almost all conditions. The clearing productivity goes up to 2200 m² per hour.

Protection – Due to the Hardox steel plates, the MV-4 is highly resistant to the fragmentation of landmines, and it’s low profile reduces its susceptibility to shrapnel damage.

Mobility & maneuverability – Small dimensions and low track-ground pressure and the working tool that can be raised, lowered, extended and retracted  enable the MV-4 system to navigate over difficult terrain such as ditches, obstacles, canals, etc.  It is able to pass over a ditch 50 cm wide and 30 cm deep, and vertical obstacles of about 30 cm in height. Additionaly, it is also able to perform self-recovery from a ditch/channel by using its hydraulic arms (extend/retract positions).

MV-4 can drive and work on highly inclined terrain both transversely and longitudinally:clearing of transverse slopes of 35° up and down, driving on transversal slopes of 45° up and down, clearing longitudinal slopes of 20°driving on longitudinal slopes of 35°.

MV-4 can drive through water to a depth of 45 cm without any special actions taken by the operator and can turn 360° on a single point.

Maintenance – Since its low profile reduces the exposure to shrapnel damage, the majority of repairs can be carried out by the operator and mechanic in the field.  Any sections that are damaged by blasts can be easily replaced.
