Research Project:
ENCOUNTER: Explosive Neutralisation and Mitigation Countermeasures for IEDs in Urban-Civil Environment

Research Areas

The objective for the ENCOUNTER project is to identify, explore and validate both existing and innovative techniques for mitigation and neutralisation of found Improvised Explosive Devises (IED) in urban/civil environment. ENCOUNTER will start off with revisiting actual practices. Relevant scenarios will be developed where different types of IEDs and different stand-off distances will be considered. New innovative techniques for both mitigation and neutralisation of IEDs in urban/civil environment will be developed and evaluated. The techniques for neutralisation and mitigation will be tested according to the scenarios in terms of reliability and safety. The outcome will be a recommendation matrix for the Police forces where they easily can chose the correct countermeasure for the current situation. ENCOUNTER will also look into the legal and societal issues involved.
