Nato demonstrates suicide bomber defence beam

12 Sep 2013 telegraph.co.uk

 

Nato is developing a device that stops suicide bombers' vehicles before they can reach their targets.

 

Scientists working for Nato in Norway have released a video demonstrating how a new shield could prevent a vehicles laden with explosives from reaching their targets.

 

Using a high-intensity electromagnetic beam, the device can stop cars, jet skis, and even drones by interfering with the vehicles' controls.

 

In the video above, the beam halts an approaching car in a simulation of a military checkpoint. In another test, the beam-emitting device is mounted inside the back of a vehicle, and stops another car approaching from behind.

 

The electromagnetic beam also works against remotely detonated bombs, by jamming radio signals.

 

Testing is set to conclude in 2014.
