The ISDM is a remote-mining engineering system that was unveiled in June 2020 during the Victory Parade. The vehicle is based on a KamAZ 6560 8x8 military truck chassis with a mine launching system mounted at the rear. The system has been developed by Ganichev NPO Splav.

The ISDM fires solid-fuel rockets carrying various types of land mines. The system marks areas with mines on an electronic map and transmits data to higher levels of the command chain. Remote mine-laying has a number of advantages as it features an increased speed of mine laying in complex environments.

According to well-known data, the ISDM combat vehicle is fitted 50-barrel multiple launch rocket system consisting of two blocks with five rows of tube launchers. Each tube can fire one 122-mm rocket equipped with mines of various types. All the firing operations are controlled from inside of the crew cabin using a computerized automatic launching system. The system is supposed to be a mine dispenser working like air-dropped cluster bombs.

The reloading system includes a transport-loading unit, also based on an 8x8 KamAZ chassis.
