Personal Counter-RCIED System (Dynamo)


The dangers of RCIEDs are not confined to the battlefield. They are an issue for every country, a threat to anyone, anywhere at any time. Therefore the ability to have a layer of protection from an RCIED for the dismounted soldier, border patrol, police, security services and first responders, can mean the difference between life and death. Dynamo provides this layer of protection, offering an ultra-compact, lightweight and reliable solution to enable confidence and freedom of manoeuvre for personnel.

As the device is intuitive to operate with a low SWaP profile, it’s suitable for a wide variety of personnel acting in austere environments, from private security professionals and first responders, to high-end special operations users. Due to the consumable and inexpensive nature of Dynamo, it is more accessible than alternative counter-RCIED systems on the market, enabling those with fewer resources and available budgets to protect themselves against the RCIED threat.

Dynamo – personal counter-RCIED system

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.

Dynamo in Situ

Protecting Forces on the Ground

Dynamo creates an electronic force protection zone around the person carrying the device. At less than 1 kilogram, its low SWaP profile means it’s an agile, convenient system for personnel on the move.

Aus Police

Protection for Police and First Responders

RCIEDs pose a serious threat to daily operations of emergency responders in high-threat regions even when conducting routine response activities. Dynamo can provide a cost effective everyday solution to protect those at risk.


Applications: Military, First Responders, Police Tactical Response, Private Security, Oil and Gas, Mining and Not for Profit Aid Organisations.
