Default US to share anti-bomb equipment, tech with NATO

AP


ISTANBUL The U.S. is considering a plan that would give NATO allies access to some of the equipment and expertise used by American troops to deter roadside bombs.

Much of the U.S. technology and know-how regarding "improvised explosive devices" remotely detonated bombs that have plagued military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan has been highly classified. But U.S. officials attending NATO meetings here this week said there is a bigger push now to share technology with allies, in part because NATO members are sending more of their troops to Afghanistan in coming months.

While the U.S. has not said what equipment could be shared, it has relied heavily on armored Humvees and Mine Resistant Ambush Protective vehicles to protect its troops during patrols.

I don't know much about electronics but there must be some sort of device that can send out multiple electronic "waves" in a matter of seconds that would active such IED's, right?
