Advanced IED Detection and Defeat

New Systems


The objective of the project is to enhance the Canadian Armed Forces capability to mitigate the threat of improvised explosive devices on future operations. It will improve the Canadian Armed Forces’ ability to anticipate, analyse and protect against improvised explosive device attacks.


This project will examine land and air based remote detection and multi-sensor landmine detection systems that will exploit emerging technology. It will provide to the Canadian Armed Forces longer-term counter-improvised explosive device equipment that will respond to emerging threat technologies and methodologies. The project will also procure an integrated stand-off detection, warning and defeat system for route clearance and convoy operations.
