Abstract:

Many Improvised Explosive Devices IEDs are fired by discharging electricity from a battery directly into an electric detonator. The purpose of this study was to determine if one possible method for defeating these type IEDs would be to cool the batteries to cryogenic temperatures. Only those batteries readily available to the general public were investigated.
