Abstract
There is an urgent need to procure for our military forces on the ground in Iraq and in other locations technology and equipment which provide the capability to effectively and immediately detect, assess, and defend against the threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It is believed that this same threat, applied to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) dispersal, could also increasingly become a concern for domestic law-enforcement personnel. Engagement with terrorists and insurgents creates unique demands for counter-technologies which are covert in nature, yet robust in capability. Among all of the possible options, only electromagnetic technology and weaponry offers that combination. In its current semi-automated laboratory form, a system developed by Nokomis has demonstrated the ability to successfully identify and confirm the presence of electronic devices used as IED triggers at a distance of 200 meters. This technology utilizes the unintentional electromagnetic signatures (not the transmission signatures) emitted by these devices. Additional funding is requested in order to further develop this system, increasing its range and speed of detection, to apply this technique to WMD detection requirements, and to integrate into the system the capability to destroy the IED/WMD trigger using high power electromagnetic (EM) sources.
