Description: The MMSR-SYDERA is joint program between Rheinmetall, MBDA France, and Thales aimed to develop the new generation flexible vehicle-based mine clearance systems. The systems developed under this initiative will respond to three scenarios: 'fast route clearing' ahead of armored vehicle formations, 'sensitive clearing' in urban areas, and 'area clearing' similar to the sensitive clearing mode but to work on large areas.

The MMSR-SYDERA team has identified five vehicles to meet the requirements of the clearing modes. These vehicles would be able to perform separately or combined to achieve the mine clearance goals. The five mine clearance vehicles are: the Smart Decoy Vehicle, Heavy Decoy Vehicle, Detection Vehicle, Verification Vehicle, and the Command and Control Vehicle. According to official plans, the MMSR-SYDERA close-in mine clearance systems demonstrators will be ready in Spring 2007.

The Verification Vehicle will verify mine alarms signaled by the Detection Vehicle marking the mine area and eventually destroying the mine using a water and air compressor. Additionally, its so-called thermal-neutron analyzer would determine the type of explosive employed by the mine. A ground penetration radar capable of detecting mines buried up to 30 cm is under development for the Verification Vehicle as well as multi-spectral optronic sensors.
