The suite will train operators to use the counter explosive hazard HMDS in an environment that realistically simulates battlefield conditions.
The HMDS is a vehicle-mounted sensor that interrogates and detects buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to provide increased standoff distance and protection for the operator. “Standoff distance” is a measure of distance law enforcement and military officials commonly use when handling dangerous situations to protect agency personnel and civilians until the danger is resolved.
According to VCTS team members, the new HMDS tablet and software will enhance VCTS capabilities by improving its detection, identification and marking of IEDs, thereby increasing the margin of safety for soldiers assigned to clearance operations. The wire detection capability training will replace the obsolete HMDS [currently in use].
