Rebus with RF Blast BinView Images
- Block the trigger signal to a radio controlled improvised explosive device without touching it
- Bridge the gap between a First Responder and subsequent arrival of the Bomb Disposal Team
- Maintain radio communications between response teams in and around the safety cordon
- Preserve operation of public mobile phone networks.

The REBUS jammer system is a low power RF inhibitor connected to an antenna in an RF shielded blast bin
The inhibition is contained inside the blast bin and focused exclusively against the Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED). The power of the REBUS jammer is held inside the bin by a layer of electromagnetic screening fabric.This shield contains the inhibition; all the power is employed to defeat the remote transmission signal that’s used to initiate the RCIED.
Stops RCIED receiving a trigger signal. The inhibitor jams the reception of a trigger signal by the (RCIED). The RF shielding of the bin also blocks and filters the incoming trigger signal.
Allows security teams to use their radio communications close by. Communications devices used by response teams working in and around the safety cordon are not affected by the inhibitor – even when they are in close proximity. The electromagnetic screening material in the bin is a two-way barrier, filtering incoming signals and containing the ECM signal inside the bin.
Does not interfere with critical radio communications like airbands. The range of the REBUS jammer is limited to the area in the blast bin so it does not affect any other radio signals in any part of the radio spectrum.
No need to shut down mobile phone networks. The REBUS jammer system prevents just one pair of phones from connecting – that is the transmitter used by the terrorist(s) to activate the IED in question and the receiver which is part of the IED.
The REBUS low power RF inhibitor:
Overcomes all threats in a single box. The inhibitor simultaneously covers all threats in the frequency range 20MHz – 2.4GHz including GSM and 3G mobile phones, popular VHF PMRs and UHF PMRs (hand-held radios and walkietalkies), and Wi-Fi. No programming or training required
Low power efficiency. Because it is positioned next to the device the REBUS inhibitor only needs a low power signal source to overpower a much stronger trigger signal transmitted from a distance. In tests, the inhibitor repeatedly killed high-power PMR signals at unrealistically close proximity.
Simple to use. The inhibitor is very simple to operate and its status can be observed from a distance.
ECM time delay start. The inhibitor slowly increases the RF power over a 60 second period, giving the operator time to walk away from the device in safety.
Up to 8 hours run time. The inhibitor’s internal rechargeable batteries will run for 4+ hours, and can be supplemented by an external battery pack to provide a further 4+ hours of run time.
Blast protection. The RF shielded bin also offers blast protection containing up to 500g / 18oz PE
