Protection Device against IED Prof. Dr. Michael Hendrix Hendrix Informationstechnik GmbH
Configuration: Tunnel Geometry The IED-Protection Device during tests by the german police.
Essential Characteristics • closed system • drastically reduced shrapnel dispersion • significant reduction of the explosion pressure • elimination of the explosion flame • compact storage • simple manageability and usage • easy handling In the future: • shielding of remote detonators • removable lateral surfaces
Exemplary fields of application • transport and logistics (airports, train stations etc.) • energy sector (power stations, power lines etc.) • tourist facilities • venues (sport, congresses, conventions etc.) • shopping centres, pedestrian areas • industry (chemical plants, oil/petroleum depots etc.) • health and sanitation (hospitals, purification plants etc.) • communication installations • police stations, political establishments, security forces
Trials: Explosive Used 1 kg PETN (Nitropenta) 30 Nails 120 x 4 mm Detonation Velocity: 8400 m/s Explosion Temperature: 4200 K
Shrapnel effect without Protection Device Result: significant shrapnel damage
Shrapnel effect with Protection Device Result: no visible shrapnel damage
Explosion Pressure Reduction Readings provided by: Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) Reduction down to 45 % of the pressure without Protection Device.
Variants: Foldable Construction In folded state the Protection Device fits into the trunk of a passenger car.
Other Systems:Ground Bomb Killer • open at the top • expensive (> 20.000 €) • low reduction of shrapnel dispersion • shielding of remote detonators not possible • poor manageability German Police classification: not effective
Other Systems:Bomb Blankets • simple blanket made of Aramid • very low reduction of shrapnel dispersion • poor manageability • contact with object not avoidable German Police classification: not effective
Our System: • completely closed system • high reduction of shrapnel dispersion • significant reduction of the explosion pressure • elimination of the explosion flame • simple manageability, compact storageablity • shielding of remote detonators possible • no contact with object German Police classification: meets all requirements
