Abstract:

The StunStrike IOD (Incoming Ordnance Detonator) would be tuned to pre-detonate and RPG by stimulating the piezo-electric crystals used in the detonator through a high-frequency, high voltage electrical pulse from a tuned, artificial lightning spark. The effect of the spark would also transmit through the housing of the RPG to detonate the explosive itself. In addition, the RF generated by the directionalized plasma field could be enough to resonate the piezo-electric crystals sufficiently to pre-detonate the device well before it came within spark range. The ability to use a directed-energy approach like this would create a virtual "force field" around US assets in RPG-rich environments.
