LION - The Mine Clearing Device

According to estimates, between 85 millions and 200 millions mines have been placed all over the world – and their number is still growing. The manual clearing of mines is as time-consuming as dangerous. The mine clearing device LION opens up new possibilites to mechanically clear terrain and roads from anti person mines in a safe and efficient way.

The LION is an armoured, tracked vehicle equipped with a clearing device at its front. The clearing unit needs about 500 HP to work.

The mine clearing machine is equipped with specific shock resistant electronics. All funktions of the LION are userfriendly controlled on a single control desk.

Optionally, control commands can be transmited via a 70-cm-band secure frequency. The operating range is 1.000 m, which guarantees a sufficient safety distance for the operator. In case of radio-failure, the machine is automatically deactivated.

Depending on the customer’s requirements, the claering device can be assemled as part of a tank, such as a Leopard or a Tiger. For further information on this topic, please contact us.

LION - Mode of Operation

The centre-piece of the LION is the clearing device with the milling rotor and multi graduated crushing chamber. The material used for the clearing unit resists the primary and secondary effects of explosions of anti-persons mines or light anti-tank mines.

The milling rotor is equipped with a multitude of carbide-tipped milling chisels and crushing tools. With a weight of 3 tons it crushes everything into pieces that gets beneath its teeth. It doesn’t make any difference whether this is solid rock of any hardness, shrublike plants, demolition material, anti person mines or scrap munitions. As a result a particle size of 0 – 30 mm is obtained.

TV cameras broadcast in real-time on a TF-LCD monitor the events taking place in front of or behind the machine. A separate radio link cares for the video transmission.
Mines, hand grenades and so on, either detonate when touched by the rotor or are taken up and are broken within the crushing chamber. The clearing dept goes up to 40 cm and is controlled automatically.

After the use of the LION the treated surface is exempt of mines and larger stones and can be used for agricultural purposes right away.

Depending on the customer’s requirements, the claering device can be assemled as part of a tank, such as a Leopard or a Tiger. For further information on this topic, please contact us.
