Most electronic jammers integrate multiple systems

Washington-BAE Systems has received R&D funding from the US Army for the development of advanced radar jammer technology. This technology aims to improve the air survivability and mission efficiency of the US Army rotorcraft and UAV systems by detecting and overcoming complex and unknown threats in electronic warfare.

According to the contract, the R&D team of BAE Systems FAST Labs will develop technologies that allow adaptive radio frequency GPS Jammers and detection functions to be integrated into the system. Although today’s electronic countermeasure systems are too large and bulky for most rotating wings and UAS platforms, BAE Systems technology combines multiple software programmable antennas into a digital phased array that can be synchronized Function, surpasses the existing function, at the same time increases the size and weight and reduces the current system performance (SWaP). The technology will enable these platforms to safely fly close to threatened and disputed areas while remaining protected.

The contract’s research expands BAE Systems’ advanced electronics portfolio and is based on long-term investments in various programs with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the US Army and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), including DARPA’s Converged Collaborative radio frequency mission operating element (CONCERTO) and DARPA program for programmable high frequency field gate array (RF-FPGA). Work on the contract will be completed at the company’s plants in Nashua, New Hampshire and Merrimack, New Hampshire.
