Jammer and Countermeasure Systems Ride RF and Compute Advances


No longer aimed at simply disrupting enemy electronic systems, jamming and ECM platforms are using integrated RF and computing technologies to misdirect electronic detection systems.


Nearing the end of COTS Journal’s year-long “Signal Chain” series, this month looks at technologies and platforms focused on the stage of the signal chain where sensor data stream signals are modified to be sent out for radar jamming or as an electronic countermeasure (ECM) to confuse enemy systems. This is stage where electronics and computer are used not passively to detect signals, but rather to send them toward the enemy as an attack.
