That is where the VIP400T series RF Jamming system becomes operational. This RF Jammer is used to saturate the environment with radio signal jamming interference in order to prevent any remote controlled radio devices from receiving a signal used to activate a bomb.

The BD300 series has the ability to alert security operators of an impending event upon detection. But what if the would-be suicide bomber is discovered, becomes unable to go through with the bombing, or is disabled (by lethal means)? What happens to the threat of the suicide bomb he or she was carrying?

There is a good chance that the suicide bomber is not alone. There is a good chance that someone brought them to the area, waited for the bomb to go off, and watched in order to confirm the detonation.

What happens if that bomb does not go off as planned by the terrorist(s)? There is a high probability that a secondary means of detonating the body worn suicide bomb will go into effect.

Managing the threat of Remote Triggers upon detection of a Suicide Bomb

There are 2 primary ways to deal with a suicide bomber upon detection. 

The first involves alerting security forces to intervene, and the second is to initiate a counter-measure that would effectively block any remote detonation signals intended for the body worn suicide bomb.

While Cellular Phones are very high on the list of triggering threats, there are others. Many suicide bombers have used commercially available radio equipment as triggering devices for Suicide Vests / Belts.

Shown here is a GSM phone as a backup for initiating the suicide vest.
