GROUND SEARCH Metal Detectors


Electro Magnetic Vehicle Shield - IED & UXO Detector for vehicle protection

Company Presentation

  • The system is extremely compact and simple and made of four principal components: search antenna with embedded control electronics; frame of support; mounting adapter; remote display unit inside the vehicle
  • Assembly is very fast and does not require tools
  • The electromagnetic detection shield is not limited to the area below the antenna but includes also the space on the two sides of it
  • Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) technology, completely digital electronics design
  • Use of special materials (outstanding resistance to mechanical shocks)



CEIA EMVS is a complete system, aimed at the detection of metallic UXOs and ERWs, conceived in order to offer a deterministic result to the operator through its visual and audio signals.
