In Iraq during the month of December 2005, 47 of the 59 (80%) coalition combat deaths attributed to hostile action were caused by improvised explosive devices (IEDs), in the form of roadside bombs, vehicle borne bombs (VBIEDs) or suicide bombers. Even more ominous than the conventional IED threat is the possibility that terrorists and enemy combatants may employ devices for dispersing chemical, biological and radiological weapons along with improvised explosive devices. A flexible approach is needed to neutralize the wide array of IEDs present in the battlefield which can also treat possible emerging plumes of WMD agents. SARA proposes a method based on reactive chemistry to counter the detonation threat of an IED coupled with SARA’s novel sonic agglomeration technique to counter the follow on WMD threat.
