Research Institution
With the denial of RF triggering through broad spectrum jamming, IR activated devices are becoming prevalent creating an urgent need for a device that can be used to block or jam IR signals used to detonate IEDs. No such device currently exists and as a consequence the lives of American troops are put at risk. Oceanit proposes to rectify this problem by using a patent pending 360 degree optical assembly optimized for IR transmission to jam and pre-detonate IEDs. In addition, a simplified wearable transmit-only device can be developed to protect soldiers on patrol.
