The IEDs of Inspire magazine

Presented by Bob Epps

Most of us have heard of Inspire Magazine, the digital publication put out by Al Queda. They’ve published several issues with IEDs directions and those IEDs have been used in the U.S. on more than one occasion. This training will be a close look at the different IEDs published in the Inspire Magazine. I will cover some history of the magazine, some of the contributing authors in it and then talk about the different devices. I’ve built nearly everyone of them, including the propane bomb, which is incredibly dangerous. There will be a lot of information in this class and I encourage dialogue and discussions throughout the presentation.

Modern Bombs Don’t Tick

Presented by Dr. Ed Bundy

If someone told you right now that they could build you an IED firing switch for under $40 that was no bigger than a stick of gum, but could be a light/dark trigger, and incorporated an acoustic, magnetic, proximity, tilt, and barometric switch…you’d probably say they were crazy.  But then if they told you that same switch had built in Artificial Intelligence (AI) so it could detect people, colors, or specific types of objects, and could be armed via Bluetooth or voice command, and set to arm and/or fire after any delay you want, from 1 millisecond up to 49.7 days…you’d know for sure they were crazy. Unfortunately they are not crazy, and just such a switch is available on Amazon in the form of a commercially available programmable circuit, and grade-school children are learning how to program them right now.

Analysis of exploited devices from various parts of the world indicates that approximately 60-70% of all the IEDs incorporate some form of programmable circuit, so bomb technicians need to be getting familiar with these as an emerging technology. This presentation will walk attendees through various types of commercially available micro-controllers available, sensor modules that can be attached, and how cheap and easy it is to make/program these types of circuits. I promise this webinar will be an eye-opener!
