The CEIA DSMD is an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) device based on the transmission of an alternated, low frequency magnetic field and the reception of the variations caused by buried metal masses. It is designed for the accurate detection of deeply buried medium-large metal masses, including unexploded ordnance, whilst discriminating against ground magnetic anomalies and metal fragmentation.
The detector comprises a telescopic tube and two probe-antennae which transmit and receive the magnetic field, mounted at the ends of the extensions. Target indication is by a high-readability colour TFT display on the front panel of the control unit and an acoustic warning signal with adjustable volume control.
The embedded GPS receiver allows real-time data logging capability during operations: GPS information (Date, Time, Latitude, Longitude) can be recorded along with significant points and data, stored into a non-volatile memory at a rate of one event per second.
