New Tech Gives Troops “X-ray Vision” to See Buried Bombs

A new sensor system detects buried bombs by “seeing” into the ground ahead of a vehicle, an innovation aimed at stopping the No. 1 threat to deployed troops.

The Soteria system, which was unveiled at a Raytheon forum in London last month, can determine the shape, size, orientation and exact location of mines and improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.

“Soteria is a world-leading technology,” said Raytheon UK Chief Executive Bob Delorge. “The system can be applied to a wide range of scenarios, including minefield clearance, which remains a significant menace in various world regions.”

Then…

In 1960, the United States propelled two six-inch-long television cameras into space on a satellite called TIROS 1. Rotating slowly above Earth, the satellite beamed back still images from two-watt transmitters.

It was roughly the same technology used to transmit 1950s-era TV shows, and the images it produced were black-and-white and grainy. But those photos, and the ones that followed, were a revelation. Suddenly sailors knew about hurricanes that were still far at sea. Farmers knew when rain was headed their way. No part of the planet was too remote to watch.

 Now…

 Today’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite, built by Raytheon, pours down images that scientists could only dream of in 1960. Last year it produced a night-vision view of Earth, the so-called “Black Marble” photo, as well as striking new views in 22 bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. The data is already improving weather forecasts and helping scientists keep tabs on climate events.

The impact of a Standard Missile-3 destroying threats equals a 10-ton truck traveling at 600 mph?

How crazy!

The SM-3 is a defensive weapon used by the U.S. Navy to destroy short- to intermediate-range ballistic missiles. The SM-3 destroys incoming ballistic missile threats by colliding with them, a concept sometimes described as “hitting a bullet with a bullet.” The impact is the equivalent of a 10-ton truck traveling at 600 mph.
