British IED expert to advise RedXDefense

RedXDefense : 09 July, 2008  (Company News)
Ex British army officer joins advisory board at RedXDefense to assist in the development of counter measures for improvised explosive devices
RedXDefense announces new Strategic Advisory Board Member, Major Chris Hunter. Major Hunter retired from the British Armed Forces in 2007 as their senior worldwide IED intelligence analyst. In 2005, he was awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal for his actions in Iraq. He has written a best-selling memoir, Eight Lives Down and is considered one of the world’s leading experts on countering IEDs.

During much of his 17-year military career, he specialised in both overt and covert operations in support of specialist police and military counter terrorism units. Hunter was involved in the planning and execution of numerous anti-terrorist arrest operations around the world, played an instrumental role during the July 2005 London bombings as one of the country’s leading suicide terrorism subject matter experts, and served multiple tours in diverse operational environments from Northern Ireland to Colombia. In addition to his vast operational experience, Major Hunter has designed numerous Counter-IED related training seminars, courses and exercises. He is highly experienced and qualified in all aspects of weapons intelligence and EOD.

“If we want to win the counter-IED fight, we need to attack and defeat every aspect of the bomb maker’s network,” said Major Hunter. “RedX’s XPAK not only allows us to find the bomb maker, it facilitates the rapid identification of every member of his network. I am fiercely proud to be working with RedXDefense. Theirs is the most advanced yet user-friendly detector I have ever seen. I wouldn’t deploy on operations without it.”

RedXDefense CEO, Dr Dugan, comments, “RedX is honoured to join forces with Major Hunter in our efforts to combat the global threat of IEDs. We begin our working relationship from a shared perspective, namely that it is vital to develop the means to identify bomb makers and bomb-making networks. And he is a continuing reminder of the integrity, bravery, and sacrifice of those we endeavour to help with new solutions.”

RedXDefense offers a suite of security solutions for guest screening, vehicle and package screening, and security management. RedX’s innovative products serve government, military and private sector customers. Eight Lives Down was published by Delacorte Press, May 2008.
