We worked alongside a team from the UK Ministry of Defence’s Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) organisation to deliver a next generation system to support Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) for the British Army. The world-class hardware – REMIX – jams radio frequency (RF) signals to prevent remote-controlled improvised explosive devices (RCIEDs) from being detonated. 

We help our customers develop breakthrough products and services within their market:

Developed by Cambridge Consultants for DE&S in partnership with the UK’s Defence Science & Technology Laboratory, REMIX can be used alongside other existing jamming capabilities to protect specialist EOD users in challenging operating conditions.  

Research, proof of concept demonstrators and successful field trials led to the system being developed and advanced for deployment with the DE&S Special Projects Counter Measures and Exploitation (SPCME) delivery team.

“Designing REMIX called for some intuitive thinking and bold engineering. The finished product will have lasting benefits, not only for us but the wider Defence community” – Major Andrew Boyce, UK MOD requirements manager.

EOD teams need to be able to quickly identify potential explosive threats and detect chemical weapons, in order to then render them safe. REMIX helps protect the EOD teams as they carry out this important and dangerous task, by using a special algorithm to prevent the initiation of RCIEDs.
