Countering Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED)

A Strategic & Tactical Threat

Improvised Explosive Device (IED) is an unconventional explosive weapon, which can be fabricated easily, at relatively low cost, to take any form and  to suit any operational environment. The flexible nature of the IED threat makes it harder to control, due to its potential to evolve and change in a variety of ways.

Homemade bombs are attached to common wireless RF receivers such as two way radios, cellular phones, pagers, remote controls etc., and enabling terrorists to use the transmitter remotely and detonate IEDs.

IEDs may incorporate military munitions and hardware, but are generally made from nonmilitary components and are usually employed by non-state armed groups & resistance movements (mostly in asymmetric warfare). These kinds of attacks traditionally target concentrations of civilians and /or state forces and currently occur globally on a scale of hundreds per month, resulting in thousands of casualties.

Remote Controlled IEDs (RCIED) continue to be the weapon of choice for adversaries, either with the IED as an only threat or within a hybrid complex scenario.

Netline Counter IED Solution

Netline’s comprehensive approach for remotely preventing activation of IED, involves a full coverage Counter IED (C-IED) jamming system in multiple configurations, suited to changing operational environment & needs.

Specializing in RF signal jamming, Netline offers a complete line of IED jamming systems, the C-Guard Family, offering a variety of solutions suited for vehicular, man-portable, and stationary missions.

The C-Guard systems can include pre-initiation, hybrid active/reactive capabilities and other advanced features. Our software defined jamming technology enables interoperability with other communication devices. 

Jamming Modes;

Reactive Jamming (RJ)

Jammers incorporate a wideband receiver that continuously performs broadband spectral analysis of the entire frequency range used by terrorists and insurgents for hostile communication and C-IED radio detonation. Upon detection of a suspected transmission, a corresponding jamming signal is rapidly generated. When the jamming signal is focused on the threat frequency, jammer efficiency and range are greatly enhanced.


The jammer continuously broadcasts interfering radio signals across a broad range of frequencies commonly used for hostile communication and to trigger IED’s.

Hybrid Jamming

The most effective jamming mode is a breed. Hybrid systems combine benefits of both active continuous jamming and reactive surgical defeat methodology by blocking strong threats (high power and short distance threats where active jammers fail), low power threats and unknown threats
