TNO support the MoD with the implementation of their policy in practice, to define realistic functional and technical requirements and to help end-users in setting up tactics, techniques and procedures for, for instance, route clearance. We do research on state-of-the-art C-IED technologies with a focus on the stand-off detection of IEDs for route clearance and military search application. Together with universities and leading industries we develop C-IED technologies including:
For post IED event investigations we are developing IED exploitation capabilities.
We do our research with state-of-the art experimental facilities. We have the possibility to test & evaluate detection equipment in lab-conditions and real life outdoor conditions. In-house developed simulation software is used that supports product development. We have deep-experts on C-IED technologies itself and experts who are able to translate these in concepts of operations.
