This simple to use electronic countermeasure from Kirintec has no impact on communications, making REBUS ideal for First Responders to use in public places. REBUS is a low power jammer and is the ideal solution for those who are first on the scene of a suspect bomb or IED.
- Mitigating the risk of a remote controlled explosion
- Bridging the gap between a first response and imminent arrival of an EOD team
- Mobile phone networks remain fully operational
- VHF / UHF communications between response teams function normally
- Does not impact on EOD operations
How REBUS Works
A REBUS system consists of a battery powered RF inhibitor which contains a microprocessor controlled signal generator, this is then connected via an RF cable to one of a number of different enclosures (pop-up tent, inflatable tent, blanket or bin) that cover the device depending on the scenario requirements. All variations of enclosure contain a lining of copper coated polymer which provides a ‘faraday cage’ effect when placed over the device thereby providing some level of screening of the device receiver.
REBUS is Easy and Effective to Deploy
Unlike conventional ECM jammers REBUS does not transmit lots of uncontained spurious RF energy, so it can be used in complex urban environments without impacting on friendly local signals such as mobile phone networks, emergency service radio systems and Wi-Fi. For this reason it is often used on public transport, at major events and in Government buildings.
The REBUS Low Power RF Inhibitor
This much talked about popular inhibitor simultaneously covering threats in the frequency range 20MHz – 2.4GHz including GSM and 3G and 4G mobile phones, popular VHF PMRs and UHF PMRs (hand-held radios and walkietalkies) and Wi-Fi.
As REBUS is positioned right next to the device, the inhibitor only needs a low power signal source to overpower a much stronger trigger signal transmitted from a distance. in tests the inhibitor repeatedly killed high-power PMR signals at unrealistically close proximity.
REBUS Jammer System
The electromagnetic screening material in REBUS is a two-way barrier, filtering incoming signals and containing the electronic countermeasure signal inside the system. The shield contains the inhibition, meaning all the power is employed against defeating the remote transmission signal which would be used to initiate the RCiED.
