Rolta Mine Field Recording System: Enables Plotting and Recording the Co-ordinates of Minefields

Through Tablet PCs with an inbuilt GIS system, Rolta’s Mine Field Recording System provides the critical information needed for mine laying as well as maintaining and managing these areas.

Rolta provides a map based solution for the Mine Field Recording System that involves the seamless integration of GPS hardware with hand-held and ruggedized Tablet PCs equipped with an inbuilt GIS based system. Mine laying parties use this solution to lay mines during operations and to de-mine those areas when required. The solution seamlessly integrates with existing Geodata and comes bundled with powerful tools for Defence Applications.

Rolta’s Mine Field Recording System enables plotting and recording coordinates of the minefield for layout of minefield strips, density, Start Strip, Markers (SSM) location, Turning Points (TP), End Strip Markers (ESM), Gaps, Lanes and Perimeter Fencing. When all these are displayed on a GIS based system, it not only provides details of these areas with respect to the geographical location of the mines, types of mines, names of the unit laying the mines, etc., but also other relevant details like the diagrammatic plot of the mine, etc. Such information is of critical importance to the Sappers Troops involved in mine laying, who need to maintain, manage and operate in these areas.
