Explosively formed projectiles (EFP) are a major problem in terrorism and asymmetrical warfare. We have developed technology that may partially solve the EFP problem. EFPs are often triggered by ordinary infrared motion detectors. A potential weak link is that such electronics are not hardened to ionizing radiation and can latch-up or enter other inoperative states after exposure to a single short event of ionizing radiation.

A problem of course is that we do not want to add radiation exposure to the long list of war related hazards. Our proposed solution exploits the high sensitivity of EFPs to short pulses of ionizing radiation while biological hazard occurs with integrated radiation.
