Deployed by security forces around the globe, the CounterBomber® system is capable of automatically detecting suicide vests and other person-borne threats at distances outside of the blast danger zone.

The result: threats are rapidly detected and mitigated before they can harm personnel or critical infrastructure.

CounterBomber® has been extensively tested by the US Government, and has been fielded to US Armed Forces as well as various International Security Forces at numerous locations world-wide. The CounterBomber® system is a proven security asset that provides un-matched protection at high-value locations such as federal buildings, mass transit hubs, hospitals, military bases, and energy plants


The CounterBomber® system is easily and quickly  assembled, and once in operation can be configured to assess personnel for threats automatically – with no operator interpretation. In addition, CounterBomber’s intuitive and rugged design reduces training and maintenance costs, and its plug-and-play functionality enables it to be quickly and securely integrated into the command and control (C2) network of virtually any security solution architecture.

CounterBomber® provides a powerful force protection capability by automatically and accurately detecting concealed threats at stand-off distances.

CounterBomber® is a video-steered radar sensor that utilizes cutting edge radar signal processing and video tracking technology to rapidly and accurately assess approaching personnel for the presence of concealed person-borne threats.  While the system has been extensively tested by the United States Government for detection of suicide vests, CounterBomber® has also demonstrated the ability to detect other concealed threats such as handguns, machine pistols, etc.  CounterBomber® has been successfully deployed operationally across the globe since 2007, and has been used in urban, suburban, and rural environments with equal success.

CounterBomber® can also readily integrate decision information and live-video streams into standard Command and Control systems for increased situational awareness among security personnel.   

CounterBomber is available through Rapiscan CounterBomber® Technologies. For more information, Contact us.
