Below are illustrations of some work carried out by me for this company.

This is a completely non-magnetic trolley made from aluminium, brass and plastics. It is designed to carry an array of three magnetometer probes which are used to establish a three-dimensional plot of magnetic anomalies in the ground in order to locate any buried ordnance. Position is logged with GPS.










intercom





This unit (here on test) is a simple battery-operated intercom for remote
communications when working with an operator carrying out hazardous work.














shell-carrier


This item is designed to run on rails and carries an unexploded shell

This device is a gun and stable mounting for an IED destructor/trigger. The gun accepts AK47 rounds
and may be remotely fired.
