Title (EN) MULTISEGMENTED TOROIDAL MAGNETIC FIELD PROJECTOR
(FR) PROJECTEUR À CHAMP MAGNÉTIQUE TOROÏDAL MULTI-SEGMENTÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A system for triggering improvised explosive devices (IEDs) with an alternating magnetic field. In one embodiment, the magnetic field is produced by a magnetic field projector in the shape of one-half of a torus, the half-torus being composed of several conductive segments referred to as toroidal wedges. A poloidal current flows in each toroidal wedge, producing a magnetic field that is projected by the half-torus. The magnetic field may induce a current, producing heating, in a conductive loop in an IED and triggering the IED.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système pour déclencher des dispositifs explosifs improvisés (IED) avec un champ magnétique alternatif. Dans un mode de réalisation, le champ magnétique est produit par un projecteur à champ magnétique sous la forme d'une moitié d'un tore, le demi-tore étant composé de plusieurs segments conducteurs désignés comme coins toroïdaux. Un courant poloïdal circule dans chaque coin toroïdal, produisant un champ magnétique qui est projeté par le demi-tore. Le champ magnétique peut induire un courant, produisant de la chaleur, dans une boucle conductrice dans un IED et déclenchant l'IED.
