The Mine Hunter/Killer Advanced Technology Demonstrator (MH/K ATD) is a US Army program that will demonstrate the current capabilities of technologies for a route clearance mission. The first part of the paper will focus on the War fighter requirements and the utility of the MH/K ATD to the GSTAMIDS Block 1 program. Then, the critical parameters of rate of advance, probability of detection, false alarm rate, probability of kill, and time to neutralize will be discussed. The development of advanced multi-sensor data fusion techniques will be covered here. Next, system integration will be discussed, centering on the challenges of vehicle interface, teleoperation, mine overpass capability, accurate target location and tracking, and autonomous control, including an automated neutralizer delivery mechanisms. Issues for transitioning the MH/K technologies and capabilities to the GSTAMIDS Block 1 program will be discussed.
