The PMEK is specifically designed as an emergency minefield extraction kit for all individual (and vehicles) to carry at all times when travelling in an area of country where mines or IED's may be.
This kit could save your life!
The kit consists of mine markers, cyalumes (glow sticks) for use at night, a trip wire feeler and a prodder which are used to search and mark a 10m safe lane for troops to extract themselves out of a minefield.
The PMEK is a really compact lightweight kit comprises of following contents:
A non-magnetic scraper to remove carefully, and from a distance, any loose earth covering the device.
A non-magnetic mine prodder of varying lengths to suit, up to 40 cm (16 inches) long. This is pointed and strong to penetrate most hard compacted ground.
25 colored marker pegs to clearly mark the location of any device; or cleared ground.
30 small chemical light sticks for night marking which can be clipped into the marker pegs.
An aid-memoire on mine field marking, and prodding techniques.
A trip wire feeler
All packed in a neat MOLLE belt pouch
The UK Mines Information Training Centre (UK MITC) says: "this basic kit gives troops the confidence that they have the necessary equipment available to extract themselves safely from a minefield. It also raises awareness of the legacy minefield threat on operations and allows them to rehearse the extraction drills prior to, and during their deployment".
