Disposal System

UXOcontrol operates COBRA Mine Disposal Systems, a non-electric firing system with a wireless ignition. This system is developed and manufactured by ECS Special Projects Ltd. and provides a safe, reliable, and cost-effective solution for the neutralisation or disposal of explosive ordnance.


UXOcontrol has a shallow water solution for quick and efficient pUXO inspection and debris removal. UXOcontrol has designed a remotely operated UXO dredge system (ROD), which is fitted as an extension to an excavator. The ROD system can be used for detection, excavation, identification, debris removal and surveying.


With UXOcontrol’s next-generation MagSense system, you’re leaving nothing to chance. It’s a solution that takes unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey technology to the next level. MagSense delivers unprecedented accuracy, greater efficiency, and enhanced safety in the detection of UXO.
