Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

... and will be fielded to troops in A´stan and Iraq.

Here the thingies: http://www.tialinx.com/eaglefamily.html

According to experts, American troops fighting in Afghanistan will begin to get gadgets designed to peer inside buildings and detect the heartbeat of people buried under rubble.

The company behind the Eagle sensors, told Defense News that the scanners can detect a person or animal 20 feet behind an 8-inch thick slab of concrete.

Quote
That wireless connection creates a number of new possibilities for the Eagle’s use. They can be sent on a small robot or drone into places not safe for people, and can immediately and wirelessly transmit whatever they see, even more than would be visible to the naked eye. Danger zones or hostage situations, where human presence might only worsen the situation, can be monitored from outside.

One immediate use for the Eagle technology in Afghanistan is avoiding the Improvised Explosive Devices, or IEDs, that are responsible for a huge number of the casualties in the war so far. The British military is considering buying a technology similar to the Eagle that would allow them to locate immediately where bombs are buried, speeding up the time it takes to clear a convoy route and lowering casualty rates for soldiers. The United States already uses this technology, the NIITEK Visor, on its convoy-clearing vehicles.

Interesting, I can see it helps in Iraq, do not yet see the efficiency for the Stan, but it looks it might detect roadside bombs also, if you have the time to scan for them and do not want to risk dogs.

Yes, I remember those from the game, helped a lot indeed. If those thingies come to the same effect in RL that really would boost troop effectivity vs. the bad guys.

Matt,

My fellow soldier receive a 6 weeks training course designed to track down EOD's.
Its very effective.
I cant give details here for security though.
Only a few men were hit by such devices.
Most of them were found and disbled.
The US army and marines also found a lot of those EOD's.
Unfortunately only after they got blown up by them.
I heard recently that some NATO partners are very interested in our approach.
