Newly Patented Devices Use Heat and Ionized Air to Protect Against Shock Waves
Updated: Aug 24
A newly patented devices suggest the use of heat and ionized air to protect troops against the shock waves generated by explosions. The patent suggests placement of arc generators on the exterior of vehicles along with a sensor to detect an inbound sock wave. The generators would create a large arc of electricity to heat and ionize the air, deflecting the shock wave.
