Abstract:

The impact of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) is devastating for US and allied troops dealing with this threat on a daily basis. The proposed technology deals with a method to identify from a safe distance, the detonation wires attached to these IEDs so that evasive action can be taken. A sensor mounted on a UAV will rapidly allow large roadside areas to be searched in real-time, thereby allowing the convoy to proceed in relative safety. The UAV will travel with the convoy, relaying additional information about the location and visible appearance of the IED from the air as verification. This proposal will miniaturize the sensor technology and integrate it with existing UAV ground stations and C4 systems. This development effort will result in a demonstration in theatre, of a UAV mounted sensor which will identify IED detonation wires, thereby providing additional protection to troops deployed in hostile areas.
