A Method for Every Soldier to Locate IEDs and Landmines

URL: http://www.jsjremotesensing.com/id12.html

Seems to me that the low-tech IED’s are creating havoc among high-tech methods trying to counter them in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This site shows a low-tech technique that employs a few wires and uses natural electric currents to find buried objects.

It’s designed for the foot soldier and could be much more effective than the hi-profile, hi-tech techniques under examination now.

Video clips show detection of metal, plastics, and objects buried under used tires.

I never see any GI’s using anything but their feet or at best a squad using metal detectors.
