unival® group
Digital Jamming as part of Multi-level Blast Protection

unival® group is a Germany based group of companies with headquarter in Bonn, Germany. We are a high-end security solutions provider with a product portfolio of synergetic products that allows our clients to efficiently combine a mulit-level-security concept.
We have divided our blast protection technologies in three main product segments:

  • Intelligence – Explosive Detection/ Night Vision/ Thermal Imaging/ GPS Tracking
  • Counter Measures – Digital Wideband Jamming Systems
  • Physical Security – Automotive, Construction and Personal Security

Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) have become the signature weapon of international terrorism as they are simple, cheap and deliver a disproportionate effect. IEDs cannot be extrapolated into anything other than a major threat to political stability worldwide. This tactic has been used by the Irish Republican Army in Britain, insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Medellin cartel in Colombia, Muslim extremists in Europe and numerous other terrorist and criminal organizations.
Detection of explosives and classification of an area or objects has therefore to be considered a vital part of strategic operation planning.

HEDD1® Real-time Explosive Detection

Also for Liquid Explosives and Weapons

unival group offers HEDD1 a handheld explosive detection device which allows receiving real-time information about the presence of explosives and weapons/ ammunition in a covert mode. The HEDD1 is the solution for which many security operators have been looking for. It works instantly, without the need of a fixed installation and can be used by any operator after a short training. The mobile system, which entered the market in October 2009, works on a patented Magneto-Electrostatic Detection (MED) method. Creating an active magnetic field, the HEDD1 is able to detect all kinds of commercial and military explosives, including PETN, TNT, dynamite, gun powder and also liquid explosives such as TATP.

HEDD1® Real-time Explosive Detection Set HEDD1 Real-time Mobile Explosive Detection HEDD1 Real-time Explosive Detection in action

Covert explosive search behind barriers for improved access control scenarios Allowing long range detection up to 100 meters, the operator will receive important information without a direct contact to the controlled persons or object. HEDD1 will find explosive material behind any barrier such as steel or other substances, outdoing a body scanner. HEDD1 will even detect so-called body-borne improvised explosive device (BBIEDs), explosives that suicide bombers might ingest or insert into their body cavities. The cost-effective system can be easily added into any existing security system, as it works complementary and maintenance-free without the need of a warm-up-time and with very short training intervals. The integration of HEDD1 into current security structures will increase the security level immediately without creating additional disturbance or delay at access control. By using the detector from a wider distance or behind barriers, covert detection becomes possible, providing the identification of a terrorist without unmasking the system being used to do so.

Even weapons and ammunition will be detected, which makes HEDD1® also specially advantegeous for any police and law enforcement applications whether stationary or mobile, as the device can also be used from a driving car.

DWJ1® Smart Digital Bomb Jamming

The protection of motorcades has become an increasing importance for governmental organizations, which requires the use of jamming systems in order to protect against road-side bombs.

DWJ1 - Smart Digital Bomb Jamming  Smart Digital Bomb Jamming

unival group is introducing the new smart-jamming-system DWJ1, which the first commercially available high-end digital jamming system operated from the latest FPGA/ DDS chip-technology allowing to individually program the jamming system to threat scenarios in real-time.

DWJ1 - Digital Wideband Jamming System to counter Radio Controlled IED’S

The DWJ1 jamming system has been developed with the aim to offer best possible protection against radio controlled IEDs. The system is offering a 100meter protection radius around the vehicle even under worst case scenarios instead of claiming unrealistic best case figures. With its software based active threat-detection mode the system can be operated in an active-standby that will activate the system upon receipt of pre-defined frequency signatures, which makes it especially useful in any environment, where jamming has to be limited or is forbidden.

The system can be operated in parallel jamming modes such as barrage, sweep, multi-sweep as well as hopping for highest jamming efficiency and also allows to program communication windows. Due to the modular design, the system can be continuously upgraded both software and hardware based for future threat scenarios and new frequencies.

Key Advantages of DWJ1®

  • FPGA controlled, fully synchronized system for multi-jammer-convoy-scenarios
  • Modular system - all components can be easily exchanged and/ or upgraded
  • More than 1.000 Watt output power available from 20 MHz – 6.000 MHz or higher
  • Latest generation power amplifiers for continuous operation in high-threat areas
  • Patented V5-HighEnd Antenna system with outstanding performance and usability
  • Passenger health protection due to EMV shielding of vehicle
  • Second alternator for power supply and back-up battery system
  • EMERGENCY MODE for high-threat scenarios controlled with FPGA
  • Protection against overheating with temperature monitoring of all components
  • Full system certification in Germany including technical acceptance
  • 100% Made in Germany - all main components and system parts are made in Germany

On basis of the same technology unial group is also offering a portable, backpack based system PWJ1®, which allows for real-time programming both by remote and notebook as well as the stationary version SWJ1®, which can be operated in buildings and can even be operated within network for both protection against RCIEDs as well as for communication jamming against eavesdropping.

PCM1- Digital Bug Detector

The PCM1 portable counter monitoring
system is currently the latest technology
for detecting concealed listening devices
in the frequency spectrum up to 15,000 MHz. 

An integrated spectrum analyser enables
it to investigate and identify all types of
transmitter.

It is possible to locate bugs precisely to
within a centimetre with the aid of special
handheld sensors.
