Explosive Ordnance Detection Aided by ProMark 120

The ProMark 120 has recently been helpful healing the wounds in Hortobágy National Park on the Great Hungarian Plain in Eastern Hungry. Established in 1973, Hungary’s first national park is rich in cultural history, but it is also the repository of unexploded ordnance from its days as a bombing range for Soviet warplanes.  Bombariado has found the centimeter-level accuracy of the ProMark 120 of great help in establishing the precise coordinates for detected ordnance.

According to András Koklács, a spokesperson for Bombariado, the decision to upgrade the system to the ProMark120 was fourfold. The ProMark 120 offers low weight, excellent price and performance, easy integration with the PDA, and cost free RTK corrections from the GPSCOM Ltd. base station.  “The ProMark 120 delivers the real time mapping accuracy we need for the often dangerous work of detecting and mapping unexploded munitions,” said Koklács.

Bombariado’s mobile mine detection system consists of a ferrous locator, data collector, field computer, Bluetooth adapter and the ProMark 12O.   The ProMark 120 achieves the desired real time accuracy that is required by receiving RTK corrections via Direct IP protocol from a ProFlex 500 base station operated by GPSCOM Ltd, a Budapest telecommunications and GNSS company and Spectra Precision dealer.  The ProMark 120 sends position information via NMEA messages by cable to a Bluetooth adapter then on to the PDA, which records and displays the position and detected information.
