Course teaches Soldiers how to use ground penetrating radar system to defeat IED threats

 

Written by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C. Powell, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchKhowst Province, Afghanistan – Improvised explosive devices, most commonly referred to as IEDs, have been, and continue to be one of the most deadly threats on today’s modern battlefield.

They have claimed hundreds of lives, caused thousands of injuries and are responsible for destroying millions of dollars worth of vehicles and equipment.

Every day, Soldiers who leave the wire face the looming threat of IEDs. But thanks to some modern technology and a team of civilian instructors at Forward Operating Base Sharana here, those threats may soon be minimized.

The instructors, from NIITEK Corporation, are teaching a Husky-Mounted Detection System Operators Course here, designed to help Soldiers install and use the latest available ground penetrating radar technology to locate IEDs, before they can cause injuries.

Codey M. Johnson, a native of Eau Claire, WI, and instructor of the Husky-Mounted Detection System Operators Course, describes various parts and functions of a Husky vehicle equipped with new ground penetrating radar panels here Aug. 5th. The panels assist Soldiers in finding improvised explosive devices by providing three-dimensional images of the ground in front of the Husky. (Photo by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C.
