Paper Abstract

This paper present an unique IR sensor technology capable of providing effective deception and noise jamming IReM capability to ward off threats posed by SFMs or STINGER missiles operated by various terrorist groups and Islamic radicals. More than 60,000 such missiles are currently in the hands of Islamic radicals and terrorist groups. Even one such missile can bring down a commercial jet transport carrying more than 350 passengers. The proposed IReM system deploys innovative jamming technique to confuse the missile seeker receiver by introducing sharp FM-modulated noise spikes in the receiver bandwidth, thereby preventing the detection and tracking of aircraft.
