The jammer is constantly updating iterations

“The first NGJ-MB pod is out the door,” said Stefan Baur, vice president of Raytheon Electronic Warfare Systems. “We are one step closer to extending the Navy’s jamming range and capability. Delivery of this pod will allow for the initial verification of ground procedures, mass properties, aircraft installation, and Built In Test checks in preparation for future chamber and flight test.”Also on display at the Bastille celebrations was the futuristic-looking Nerod F5 microwave jammer, a rifle-shaped weapon designed to target drones by blocking the pilot’s signals.

The LMADIS system comprises two all-terrain vehicles, called Polaris MRZRs. One serves as a command unit, while the other is outfitted with sensors and signal-wifi jammer equipment. The sensor unit feeds information to a tablet on the command and control MRZR, from which an operator can track an incoming drone, get visual confirmation that it’s hostile, and disrupt communications between a drone and its home using a radio frequency blast.

While both the commercial civilian drones LMADIS was tested on and Iran’s military drones likely use the same control systems and frequencies, it’s interesting that the U.S. seemingly played down the jammer’s capabilities, mentioning it had been tested only against civilian drones.In the early days, signal jammer blocked only one set of frequencies, such as 2G, while complex jammers could block several types of networks at once, such as two-three-four G.Once again, jammers have evolved to add bluetooth and wifi bands to the scanning range, leaving several forms of communication common in society completely covered.

Stratign is a world leader in communication interception, communication jamming, signal processing systems, and communication security systems.A small California-based tech startup has reportedly begun supplying small “hard kill” attack drones to the U.S. military that are designed to bring down similarly sized hostile unmanned aircraft by physically smashing into them. The market, within the United States and around the world, for counter-drone systems, ranging from electronic warfare jammers to directed energy weapons to suicide drones, has exploded in recent years as the threats that even relatively cheap and diminutive unmanned aircraft pose has become glaringly apparent.
