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.”
