BEML Ltd, one of the leading actors in the public sectors under the Ministry of Defence, has rolled out the first prototype of its Mechanical Minefield Marking Equipment Mk-II, built on a BEML TATRA 6x6 chassis, an ‘Atmanirbhar’ product, developed through TOT from R&DE Engineers of the DRDO. BEML is executing the project by partnering with several MSMEs.

The Mechanical Minefield Marking Equipment MK-II developed by R&DE (Engineers) is designed for marking the minefields at a faster rate, semi-automatically with minimal human intervention. The equipment is capable of marking/fencing at a minimum rate of 1.2 km/h with an inter-picket spacing of 15 meters. The system can place the pickets at 10-35 meters spacing. The picket can be driven to a maximum depth of 45 cm.

The system is designed to operate in the plains of Punjab, as well as semi-desert and desert of Rajasthan, in all weather conditions. The system can store 500 pickets and 15km-long polypropylene rope.

BEML is expected to receive orders of more than 55 systems from the MoD after the successful trial evaluation.
