The HMDS Desktop Trainer uses the same software and touch screen interface as found on the VCTS and the operational HMDS, therefore, providing a seamless training capability. By design, the HMDS DT is easy to operate by unit personnel. Upon fielding, the BEB Route Clearance platoons will now have the ability to train VMMD operators on proper HMDS employment, operation, and detection of explosive hazards.
