Demand in the Middle East for ‘total systems integration’ in C4I reflects a broader interest in developing robust joint operating capabilities.
Compact anti-jamming system benefits small-calibre missiles
Jamming is a constant threat for any military system that relies on signals to carry out and complete its mission — and weapons such as missiles are no exception. However, to date, anti-jamming devices are generally large, resource-intensive in terms of cost and power, and can be subject to export controls.
As a result, they are seldom used on smaller-calibre munitions.
To fill this gap, MBDA teamed with University of Swansea under the French-UK Materials and Components for Missiles, Innovation and Technology Partnership (MCM ITP) to develop an anti-jamming device with optimised SWaP.
The device was presented at the Complex Weapons, Innovation …
