… the MX system has proved to work practically in continuous mode, even in the most challenging desert conditions. Through six days a week, the system has driven more than 100 km per day.

The MAGNETO® MX is a vehicle towed heavy duty terrain magnetometer system for large area UXO search.
The system carrier MX-Carrier has a width of two meters and can be extended to a maximum width of four meters. Between eight and 16 magnetometer probes can be fixed to the carrier. Thus a maximum daily coverage of 25 ha can be reached, depending on terrain conditions, number of magnetometers and array width.
Due to the off-road design of the carrier and the high flexibility of the measurement configuration, the MAGNETO® MX system is being used in the fields of UXO detection, geophysics, archaeology and for surveys of contaminated sites.
