New equipment for demining

The latest technology and equipment for military engineers demonstrated at a conference on mine action in the suburbs. See watch the video on the site RIA, looks like a form of "soldier of the future" for the field engineer and mine detection radar.

A new form of combat engineers is a ballistic suit that weighs about eight pounds. This new product, according to developers, can be worn as casual wear.

"The whole body is protected by the sapper, and in a zone of vital organs are plates ADP. This is a high modulus polyethylene, which holds the shard at over 800 meters per second, including small arms, TT pistol 9 mm from five meters",
— Said the head of the direction of special programs company-producer remedies Alexander Gelder.

Form equipped with the latest electronics project "soldier of the future." Now the work is computerized sapper — enough to trigger a mine detector.

The conference features dozens of designs for engineers, they all received high praise from the military. The plans Command Corps of Engineers in two years to upgrade its technical base to third.
