Cell Phone Arming and Initiating Devices

The military experience in Iraq and Afghanistan through the beginning of the 21st Century, has been that terrorist groups have adapted cell phones and other cordless phone systems to remotely initiate improvised explosive devices.

Cell phones are found all over the world, and function through sending their signals via the geo-synchronous cell phone satellite network.

Several of the features of the cellphone, including their lighting on the screen and keypad, their ring tone, and the vibrate mode unit (among others), have all been utilized to initiate IEDs.

We use real cell phones, or design the inert IED systems to work in conjunction with insertion of the instructor’s cellphone.

Our inert IED products based on cell phones give the instructor and student real-world challenges to defeat such IEDs.
