ISRAELI-MADE SYSTEM AIMS TO MAKE THE IED THREAT HISTORY

Post by Thorin on Fri Aug 04, 2017 6:20 pm

Over 2,000 American troops have lost their lives to improvised explosive devices since the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

After three years of development, Israel Aerospace Industries has begun testing its Counter Improvised Explosive Device and Mine Suite mobile system. The system can identify, locate and destroy improvised explosive devices and mines before troops even reach them. According to project manager Reuven Y., the system, which is not yet operational, “is a new concept that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world. It is a breakthrough technology against IEDs.”

Primarily intended for patrols during routine security missions on Israel’s borders, CIMS created by Elta, one of IAI’s subsidiaries, can detect both surface and underground IEDs, mines and roadside bombs. “The CIMS suite was designed under the premise that no one sensor can provide the adequate probability of detection and low false-alarm rate required by today’s operational needs,” read a 2014 statement by IAI when the system was first unveiled.

With an above-surface detection system, and underground mine and IED detection system, CIMS can be installed on a number of tactical combat vehicles including tanks, APCs and even unmanned vehicles.

It can be operated day or night and in any weather condition and environment.
