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. Nokomis has demonstrated the ability to successfully identify and confirm the presence of electronic devices used as IED triggers at a distance of hundreds of meters. This technology utilizes the unintentional electromagnetic signatures (not the transmission signatures) emitted by these devices. This Phase II SBIR will continue the development and integration of the Advanced Electromagnetic Location of Electronic Devices (AELED) system for counter IED operations.
