MEMATT, which has far superior features to its international counterparts, is designed to be resistant to at least 8 kilograms of TNT. Tested against anti-personnel and anti-tank mines. Managed with a 5 kilometer remote control, MEMATT provides ease of use to the operator with the number of cameras on the vehicle.
