Abstract
Proposed research will address the phenomenology and develop a technical concept of buried IED defeat through the creation of low-frequency electromagnetic fields in the ground by the LF current injection. The technical concept will be based on creating pulsed low-frequency currents in the ground layer using either explosive or capacitor driven pulsed current source and then employing the key principle of directly coupling the electromagnetic fields, excited by these currents, into the buried IEDs electrical/electronic components. These time varying electric and magnetic fields will couple directly into the IED components or lead wires and incapacitate the IED electronics and/or pre-detonate/disable their blasting caps.
