Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs) are the Weapon of Choice of Terrorists and Groups waging asymmetric warfare. In 2013 alone, IEDs proliferated into 100+ countries. The use of IEDs is steadily increasing for a few very simple reasons:
Bulk Homemade Explosives (HME) Precursors (aka bomb making ingredients) used to make the main explosives charge in most IEDs are inexpensive, easy to obtain, and can be converted into a wide variety of bombs. These HME precursors when mixed with a fuel become very powerful explosives. HME is successfully used against the military, police, security forces, civilians and high profile facilities with devastating results.
Nitrate Fertilizers and Potassium Chlorate represent 93% of the Homemade Explosives (HME) Precursors used in the IEDs employed in Afghanistan today. These ingredients are used in IEDs worldwide as well because they are cheap, available, and effective. The American Innovations (Ai) Bulk HME Detection test kits are helping military and police detect and differentiate in seconds, bomb making ingredients from other bulk materials used for legitimate purposes. Objective: Save Lives while building trust.
