Preventing Casualties in Iraq

Speaking of the war effort, Sevens member Sue (Fahl) King sends along a story from CNN: Jamming Systems Play Secret Role in Iraq.

If you've followed the war news, you know many of the American casualties have been caused by IED's, Improvised Explosive Devices, planted along the roads and detonated remotely by cell phones or radio signals. Sue works for JFW Industries out of Indianapolis which makes components for Warlock Duke, the CREW system developed by Syracuse Research being used in IRAQ. A CREW system jams the radio signals that detonate IEDs.

Thanks for the story, Sue, and for helping to shepherd this system that's saving our soldiers lives.
