Army purchases mine detection devices

The Army has awarded L-3 Communications Corp. a $26 million contract for handheld mine detection devices.

Under the contract, L-3 of New York will deliver AN/PSS-14 mine detection systems and associated accessories to the Army. The order is the fourth full-rate production contract for the product, the company said.

The AN/PSS-14 product meshes ground-penetrating radar and advanced data fusion algorithms with sensitive metal detection to identify land mines. The device is designed to distinguish live mines from metal debris and clutter.

L-3 CyTerra developed the technology under the Army's Handheld Standoff Mine Detection System program.
