Route Proving and Clearance Multi-Tool

Pearson Engineering’s Route Proving and Clearance Multi-Tool combines detect, protect and defeat capabilities to Counter Explosive Ordnance.

Pearson Engineering’s Route Proving and Clearance Multi-Tool combines DETECT, PROTECT and DEFEAT capabilities to Counter Explosive Ordnance.

The RP&C Multi-Tool delivers a scalable and modular suite of RP&C capabilities for use on your existing vehicle fleet. Able to DETECT, PROTECT and DEFEAT a range of explosive threats, both on and off route, it enables freedom of manoeuvre and the maintenance of operational tempo.

Commonality of spares and training ensures a minimal logistical burden for the deployed force.


  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to DETECT low metal content threats
  • Metal Detector to DETECT high metal content threats
  • Active Height Control maximises equipment performance and scanning accuracy
  • High definition and infra-red vision systems enable the Positive Identification of surface threats and ‘Ground-Sign’ at distance
  • A Laser Spectrometer aids threat awareness and confirmation at distance
  • The Manipulator Arm is capable of holding the GPR vertically to allow the scanning of walls and threats adjacent to your route
  • A tethered Unmanned Aerial vehicle (UAV) can be provided to aid off-route detection and the Commander’s local situational awareness



  • Vehicle and crew survivability is enhanced with the inclusion of a Route Proving Roller which protects the host vehicle from Victim Operated (Pressure Plate) threats
  • An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) can be provided to give a Commander a persistent over-watch capability, which can both DETECT and DETER the use of Command Initiated devices
  • An IR decoy can also be integrated



  • The Excavator Manipulator Arm can rapidly change attachments, allowing one vehicle to go from a DETECT to DEFEAT mission in a matter of minutes
  • Various attachments (Digger, Ripper, Grabber, Bucket) are available to aid ground interrogation and threat neutralisation
  • Fitting of an ‘Air lance’ aids threat confirmation (debris removal and non-invasive excavation)

Key Features

  • Verifies the presence of pressure-fused Improvised Explosive Devices on a route
  • Stand-off ahead of the vehicle increases survivability
  • Jettison capability ensures that a blast damaged roller does not serve as an obstacle for further mobility
  • Configurable suite of threat detect capabilities provides tactical flexibility and a scalable approach
