He tells in detail about an attempted insurgent ambush using a IED set off with a Motorola radio transmitter.
My question is are there any systems/weapons that are man portable or vehicle mounted that can send out a EMP pulse that is very localised and
directed, that could knock out the electronics on the radio transmitter?
Maybe a bit tricky to use in field...
if it's even possible
But good old radio jamming should give EOD Engineers enough time to deal with that kind of bombs.
Russians tried using similar IEDs During WW2, the attempt was foiled by playing constant music on the frequencies they used, so that detonation
commands didn't get through..
Let's all hope and pray that they get the JIEDN all certified and stuff and into the sandbox. It would be a miracle if JIEDN becomes fully
operational. It's what they should have had like 2 years ago! IEDs are like the only thing that the insurgents have enough skill to utilise.
To: NW-oh uh I mean Government,
Please get lots of anti-IED systems such as JIEDN to Iraq ASAP or else you'll have to ban the sale of cell phones and confiscate and destroy all
existing cell phones in Iraq
