Title: Defeat system for vehicle attached improvised explosive devices

Abstract

An explosive device detection and expulsion system broadly comprising a detection subsystem for sensing an IED attached to a vehicle and an expulsion subsystem for expelling the IED from the vehicle. The detection subsystem includes a sensor for detecting an IED via an electromagnetic field change or capacitance change, vibrations, and/or heat, and a controller for activating the expulsion subsystem upon receiving a detection signal from the sensor. The expulsion subsystem includes a deployable panel configured to be attached to the vehicle and a deployable mechanism for shifting the deployable panel from an undeployed state to a deployed state so as to expel the IED from the vehicle.
