Some Good News

An Israeli company has developed a mobile system that can detect IEDs from many yards away.  This would allow vehicles approaching an area to stop before they get to the explosive device.  The system can integrate automatic machine gun fire to detonate or destroy the IED from a safe distance as well.  Here's a fuller description of the system.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, more American troops were killed or injured by IEDs than by any other cause.  Having a system to defeat those bombs is a major step forward in defeating terrorists.
