After the launch of the GCS-100 in December 2016, Global Clearance Solutions (GCS) has launched on February 6, the GCS-200, an unmanned and remote-controlled Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) platform. It is designed for various missions involving the clearance of hazardous items in high-threat scenarios.

The all-rounder of EOD platforms: The GCS-200 focuses on its multi-purpose usability against Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and other forms of explosive threats. It serves its purpose on route, area, landmine and runway clearance operations.

The standard three-point hitch guarantees a wide range of attachments, such as:
- Tiller (clearance of AP and AT mines)
- Flail (clearance of AP and AT mines)
- Manipulator arm (clearance of IEDs and heavy ERW)
- Dozer blade (earth moving, removal of obstacles)
- Fork lift (handling of heavy objects)
- Runway flail (destruction, collection and removal of hazardous items, incl. UXO)
- Runway clearance system (collection and clearance of cluster munitions and debris)

A specifically designed operator cabin is also available that facilitates the safe and effective utilisation of
the remote-controlled GCS-200.

GCS employs a coherent product strategy for all three systems: field-proven and reliable platforms combined with standard as well as customised attachments. “Today’s conflict theatres pose an unprecedented threat to security forces and civilians. The GCS-200 is to serve as an indispensable tool to accelerate the clearance operations and render the contaminated areas safe again, thus reducing the risk to human life. We have invested a lot of resources to develop the most advanced and innovative range of products for a wide range of EOD appliations,” commented Philipp von Michaelis, CEO of Global Clearance Solutions.

Unique benefits: The GCS-200 is equipped with ballistic protection and a V-shaped hull to help dissipate mine blasts. It features a number of innovative and unique advantages, such as: Maximum survivability, Multi-purpose capability, An automatic transmission for operational flexibility, Optimized maintenance and serviceability.
