A New Challenge
Wars and civil wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine, Libya and Iraq have seen focus shift from traditional mine clearance to the disposal of booby traps and other explosive remnants of war (cluster munitions, unexploded bombs). This is the case now, particularly in regions where the so-called Islamic State has been defeated, where widespread distribution of IEDs is preventing Iraqi refugees from returning to their towns and villages.
In addition, attacks with car bombs and IEDs are also increasing in the countries bordering the conflict states, with the intent of creating the greatest possible damage among the civilian population. These remnants of war will need to be removed once the wars in Syria, Libya and Iraq are over.
Nevertheless, in terms of humanitarian demining, traditional mine clearance will continue to be a task that will occupy the international community for many years to come.
GCS’s products are comprised of two components: a platform, and an attachment that can be changed quickly depending on the use. These attachments range from a robotic arm for IED clearance to a sweeping brush for removing remnants of war. The current platforms are more compact than comparable models, and hence easier to use and transport. With its new product range, GCS employs state-of-the-art technologies, while at the same time relying on tried-and-tested components.
GCS’s product portfolio includes comprehensive client advisory services on the use of a wide range of technologies and different technical areas of application, as well as service, maintenance, logistics and management.
