The system also includes a road gate and a cautionary sign in the local language. Insurgents who ignore this warning have their tires punctured. Troops then have ample time to react in appropriate fashion.
Users can also select reflective gates, variable range radio control and remotely operated infrared cameras. TRAP components can operate 10,000 times on a single charge, according to a spokesman.
