DCD Protected Mobility

DCD Protected Mobility is the OEM of the Vehicle Mounted Mine Detector (“VMMD”) system and has established itself as a fully accredited, socially responsible international systems house, providing sustainable products for the defence sector by developing intellectual property in partnership with governments, customers and communities. The range of mobile landmine detection vehicles and armoured personnel carriers has been deployed in peacekeeping missions across the globe for the past 30 years and has been tested in accordance with NATO standards in the USA and France. 

To facilitate working in the US market, DCD Protected Mobility operates in partnership with Critical Solutions International (CSI) for the marketing and support of the Chubby Mine Detection System.  The partnership has successfully type-classified the VMMD System on a US Government Programme of Record – the only company in SA to do so.

It is with great pleasure that we can confirm that we have secured a new facility for DCD Protected Mobility located at 22 Monteer Road in Isando, just off the R24 highway. (GPS coordinates S26°08.041S E28°12.363S).
