Mobile jammers just turn passive into active

Experts and lawmakers said on Tuesday that the U.S. military has invested too little in new electronic warfare mobile cell phone jammer and lags behind China and Russia to block radio signals, fake radars and hide its own emissions. Bryan Clark said: Hudson Institute (Hudson Institute) National Defense Concepts and Technology Center Senior Researcher and Director.

At an event hosted by the Hudson Institute, Clark said online that the U.S. military must get rid of a few relatively large systems that are mainly used to protect older platforms, such as self-defense mobile phone jammers or… Anti-missile system using electromagnetic warfare. “Timothy Walton, a Clark Hudson University colleague and co-author of the new report on electronic warfare, said that China’s electromagnetic warfare strategy has developed in the past few years.

The Chinese have many high- and low-power military cell phone jammers and directed energy weapons, but one of the main challenges the Chinese Armed Forces now faces to the United States and its allies is that the [People’s Liberation Army] has begun to build a huge network. Signal distribution of passive and active sensors in a multi-static and completely passive network. He said that even if these forces did not send out signals, these new networks could better detect attacking forces. “For example, it is difficult for the U.S. military to know when to spot them and when to attack them.”

Rep. Jim Langevin (Jim Langevin) said that the Pentagon’s recent budget did not put money into the right combination of electronic warfare equipment. “I don’t think they have prioritized the right things in the budget,” said Langewen, chairman of the House Armed Forces Committee’s Network, Innovative Technologies and Information Systems Subcommittee.

Traditional electromagnetic warfare tools and tactics rely to a large extent on complex hardware to manipulate different wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. However, modern methods emphasize the use of software to find, intercept and transmit light of different wavelengths with less hardware.

Langevin said: “The current requirements are actually hardware-based. The software is seen as a back-end support system, and it does need to be changed.” “One of the problems is that the service and its budget revolve around protecting older systems such as ships and aircraft. The most important thing is that we must be more agile. We must innovate. We must focus more on software than technology.”
