The Advancing Threat
Attacks by insurgent and terrorist groups have grown increasingly sophisticated over the last 15 years. Terrorists favour IEDs because of their proven ability to inflict mass casualties, destroy property, cause fear and disruption and attract media attention.
RCIEDs can be assembled with relative ease and used remotely. The ability to design and deploy these against a range of targets from troop convoys, forward operational bases, sports stadiums and concert venues as well as against VIPs, has grown exponentially.
The range of devices that can be used to initiate an attack has spread across the electronic spectrum requiring a high level of electronic counter measures to neutralise the threat.
For military and security personnel operating in hostile and hazardous environments, where there is a known threat of RCIED attacks, a system to counter this threat is a vital piece of every day equipment to protect the lives of at-risk personnel.
Dynamo is a personal electronic counter measures (ECM) system from L3Harris, designed to meet this requirement. The system is inexpensive, has a low size, weight and power (SWaP) profile and requires no training to operate.
The light-weight personal device provides an agile, convenient solution to protect against the threat of RCIEDs for personnel on the move.
RCIEDs can be built relatively easily and cheaply using readily available components and triggered by devices such as mobile phones. This has led to them becoming a common, and often preferred, weapon for adversaries, posing a very real and evolving threat to military and security personnel.
