USN EA-6B Prowler and Rhino's F/A 18G were used in Afghanistan and Iraq to detect and neutralize IEDs
Works very well on all IEDs except the once that have a secondary manual trigger.

It's israeli so haram.
I didn't know tech was declared haram....no matter where it came from. :rolleyes:
A small autonomous robot can do this task more efficiently
Maybe but no one has pushed forth a fully fleshed concept so I'll say that's a hard no...

You see the big radar in front of the vehicle? You really need that to find the mines....which is why the vehicle is big too.....if you can make a miniature radar that can do the same job, just miniaturized, well you have a marketable idea!


Just 10km/H is a suicide
Better than 0 km/hr which is what all the other non-working ideas have achieved...

This is another idea for anti mine devices but only works for contact based IEDS, probably not RF based ones...


Guess the speed for the above. :D

Does our military brass and decision makers even have any desire to procure/research such technology? Do the lives of our soldiers matter to them?

PA has Counter IED, Explosives and Munitions School at the Military College of Engineering in Risalpur. The courses include theory sessions and practical tasks with a repair-focussed assessment, instilling in students the skills and knowledge necessary to physically repair and maintain the highly technical CIED equipment - including robots and electronic counter measures. Students/Operatives are from the Pakistan Army, Civil Defence and Rangers.
British had donated some CIED's.

" Having donated the equipment through the UK Government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, The Foreign and Commonwealth Office appointed Optima to devise a long-term solution to ensure Pakistan’s counter explosive threat agencies were able to handle ongoing maintenance and any necessary repairs. "

This was in 2017.

"General Shields and the delegation met with the Pakistani Army’s Chief of General Staff, the Director General of Military Operations, and officials from the Interior Ministry. General Shields also met with the Chairman of the Pakistani Army’s Counter Improvised Explosive Device Organization (CIEDO) to discuss initiatives, training, and other areas of military cooperation between the United States and Pakistan. "

Defense’s Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization (JIDO) supports a variety of counter-IED bilateral engagements and training and provides support for the Pakistani Army’s efforts to improve their counter-IED exploitation capabilities in Risalpur.


This was in 2018.

"Optima initially trained two highly experienced technicians so they could go on and deliver the specially created one-week maintainer course to operatives from the Pakistan Army, Civil Defence and Rangers. "



Now, Interior Ministry was mentioned which is responsible for both FC and Rangers. so why was FC not included in the CIED course but Rangers were included ?
