Ok most of these IED's are radio controlled right? why not just have some radio that sends out a bunch of signals while our vehicals are going down the roads blowing up the bombs before we get there.

Or we could just carpet bomb the whole damn place...

I am pretty sure they must be trying that already, or have a good reason not to. (e.g. what if the bomb blows up as a bunch of children are walking by?).

IEDs seem to be such a big problem that they must have some smart people working on it. I hope.

thats basically what the IDF does, except they have jammers instead, fairly simple for them as most pali bombs are detonated by a pager or cell phone. now in Iraq they are probably doing the same thing so jammers may be the right idea there too, but it still doesnt stop all of them as you can still have a guy with a peizoelectric detonator(ala claymore) waiting to push the button

the idea works for the Israeli army and I think we should try it too.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 10:09:47 AM EST
I like your idea of the random signals.

There are areas known to be popular IED traps. Set up some in the area so that when the bombers set the bomb.... it explodes before they can get away.


(if in fact they use radio signals.)

I just read an article in one of the Defense Industry publications (I think it was one of the Janes newsletters)..

Anyway the article pointed out 90% of our casualties are from IEDs and went on to discuss some of the ideas they are working on.

Yes it is being worked on.

1st priority I want our soldiers to not get blown up, if the iraqis are setting up IED's I would rather have a iraqi get nailed by it than a GI. If these terrorists are setting this shit up others in the area know about it, yet they do nothing to stop it. You start blowing up a ton of civilians eventually the people will be against them.

Notice how few British Convoys get whacked by roadside bombs? Thats because we fit our vehicles with jammers for all the usual radio frequencies of pagers, garage door controllers, central locking fobs etc, etc, we've had them for years, (bombs in Northern Ireland), so just ring up the British Ministry of Defence and they will give or sell you them, I can't work out why your army don't!

Yes… that's why we spend the money to keep them safe… but we are the 'poor kids on the block' compared to the US Army… they probably spend more on pencils in a year than we do on bullets…

There was a big bust up in the news and papers recently about a British Soldier getting killed by a roadside bomb, not because he was killed, but because his 'new in theatre' vehicle had not had a jammer fitted before it was sent out on patrols.

Hate to say it (well, not really) but the lives of OUR guys are more important than those Iraqi children. WE didn't plant the damn IED, and as long as we didn't intentionally detonate it with kids around then I feel we're covered ethically.

There are a couple of systems that we're using to pre-detonate or jam roadside bombs.

They don't always work, but they exist.

And yes, the Brits do have some stuff that we don't, but as was mentioned, there's a lot fewer of them.

As I posted a couple weeks ago a even better device would be to get the 13kw solid state laser out into the field fitted to a Bradley, M113, or Stryker.

We did send one to Afganistan and it worked well dealing with EODs at Bagram AFB and Kabul. We didn't send it to Iraq cause its in a Humvee and one RPG would wipe out 25 Million in equipment.

But put it in a AFV and at the front of a column and have it fry every suspicious object and every discolored patch of dirt or pavement.

It has even proven able to burrow into the ground at a rate of 40cm/sec to reach buried mines.

And when it gets to the package it burns it up rather than causing a explosion (unless they used black powder) since most military and industrial explosives will burn before they explode. Even if the detonator finally cooks off, usually most of the explosive is burned away, so the forces is MUCH reduced.

Thus it would not crater roads or damage buildings around where the bomb is planted.

We are

When I was in Iraq we had a system installed in our vehicle. I am not at liberty to talk about it, since it's still being used in the field.

From personal experience it's not 100% effective.

Here's an article that talks about it, since this has obviously been cleared for public viewing
Stryker Brigade News

Oh, and very few British convoys get hit as compared to US Conveys is due to the danger level where each group operates. Not putting down the British troops, they were great troops, but they don't travel through the Sunni Triangle as much as US troops.
Link Posted: 10/14/2004 12:28:40 PM EST
we are using RF jammers not all an not all vehicles have them just like radios most convoys dont even have them either. IEDs are either cell phone triggered wire triggered or RF triggered like wireless doorbells or walkie talkies. it was much easier for us to dispose of IED we found with MK19 or 50 than wait 3-4 hours on EOD. point is spot them before.

IIRC I read an article towards the beginning of the ass-kicking that's taking place over there.


One of our smarty-pants troops figured out that the majority of the detonators for roadside IEDs were set to use a fairly specific frequency often found in R/C vehicle usage.

So he took an R/C control unit, mounted it in his vehicle, and activated it by taping down the control stick. The theory was that it would detonate any IEDs using that frequency range about 200 yards before the vehicle hit the IED.



I can't really remember the nitty gritty details of the article though.

Thats' the point though, isn't it, the US Army is just getting them now, they were available all along, and I'll bet the British ones are better, we had 30 years of field testing in Northern Ireland. The systems were so good, the IRA resorted back to command detonation in the end. There are times when the DoD really should accept that other people hadthis problem sorted years ago… this is one such occassion. IDF also do good jamming gear.

The Insurgents down south used to try IED's a lot, but with the almost zero sucess due to jammers from day one, they have now resorted to standard RPG and MG ambushes… bad idea againt regular army that is not afraid to get the bayonets on and get up close and personal…

Andy I'll bet it had more to do with who got the contracts (US companies) vs the NIH syndrom. There is a nice article on this subject (procuring here rather than overseas) in this month's issue of 'Armed Forces Journal'.

You would think we would be using some type of jammer. Not necessarily setting the bombs off but something that jams the radio signal(s) that trigger the bomb. I'm sure there must be a reason we are not doing this. At least I hope so.

I had forgotten about this, but I was talking to a guy who works with DARPA at a party last weekend. He was telling me about this project he's been working on for the last 18 months that will retrofit UAVs to more or less exclusively look for IEDs on roadsides. Camera images get sent back to a laptop in the convoy. I listened to him for a minute and realized his whole project was based on visual spectrum camera imagery. As soon as he finished, I said something like "that's not going to work for shit. There's trash all over, and they're pretty adept at hiding bombs by now." Apparently he'd heard this obvious criticism before and doesn't have an answer, 'cause he got all irritated and never really did come back with anything. I went on to tell him about Soviet anti-tank mines that expelled a shaped plasma penetrator and looked exactly like a boulder, even came with cans of spray paint to match the terrain. He was just like "Well, that's was the Soviets", like these insurgents are amatuers at building IEDs.

It still blows me away when I here about tax dollars being wasted on projects that obviously have no use on the ground. I'm sure the cameras and remote operating equipment and guidance systems and software this project involves are all great stuff, but completely fucking useless.

What you describe is a classic syptom of why the problem is not being solved… no one want's to design or buy a simple broad-band radio transmitter… because it doesn't sing, dance, play dixie and look good in a promotional video. So you get gazzilions wasted on these way out hi-tech solutions, UCAVs, remote cameras… data links…

The neccessary equpment is already combat proven and available off the shelf…

"The Allen ECM Shield™ is a modular jamming system developed to counter the threat from Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) terrorist attack. The Allen ECM Shield™ uses sophisticated RF technology to transmit a powerful ‘jamming’ signal that inhibits an RCIED control signal that may be used to detonate a device.

As the worldwide terrorist threat continues to become ever more sophisticated, security forces and law enforcement agencies must maintain operational capability through more capable hardware and advanced training. The design of the Allen ECM Shield™ makes it a very powerful and effective tool, yet retains user-friendly operation and cost-effectiveness.

Threat
The modern terrorist threat presents an increased risk of RCIED detonation from several common RF devices in everyday use. Of these types of equipment, radio control devices, mobile telephones and electronic pagers are the most prolific. Accordingly the ECM Shield™ system capability is directed at the specific threats posed by these 3 items when used for terrorist purposes. The Allen ECM Shield™ is configured as a modular jamming system that allows the end-user to select protection against any or all of the above devices.

Deployment
The Allen ECM Shield™ can be configured in either a vehicle-mounted and powered format or man portable format for use in either an EOD role or in a force protection scenario.

Allen ECM Shield™ jamming provides protection to VIPs in transit, military convoys, sensitive venues and high value fixed installations. By effectively emitting a protective shield of electro-magnetic radiation the target is significantly ‘hardened’ to terrorist attack.
