oa CSIR Science Scope - Research and development to protect soldiers from landmines and improvised explosive devices : defence



Landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) remain a major threat for military vehicles, their occupants and other assets. Due to the improvised nature of the current threats, the shift from conventional to unconventional warfare and the use of improvised weapons and terrorism, traditional methods of protection need to be adapted or new technologies developed. In one research project addressing this challenge, the CSIR developed a vehicle add-on protection package to interrupt explosively formed projectile IEDs.
