Future Electronic Warfare Demands Smaller, Adaptable Gear

The U.S. Army is in the process of developing a series of vehicle- and backpack-mounted, counter-IED systems capable of jamming the signals of repurposed commercial technologies used to trigger improvised explosive devices. The developments come as part of an effort to protect against unconventional enemies and commercial threats.

Foundations for The Army’s proposed Integrated Electronic Warfare System (IEWS), a group of offensive and defensive systems located in the air and on the ground, are currently at various stages of testing. A software suite for planning and simulating missions and solutions in advance, known as the Electronics Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT), is also in development. Other projects being worked on by The Army include Thor III, a lightweight, mobile counter-IED jammer for use by a squad of 12, and iCREW, an individual radio-controlled device programmed to counter a narrow selection of known threat signals over a smaller range. Several other sensors and systems are also in various stages of testing and development.
