Indra has developed a lightweight, portable electronic defence manpack system to equip soldiers with advanced radar-band analysis capabilities, the company announced on 14 June.

The backpackable system is designed to enable soldiers to determine the position of enemy air defence systems, aircraft, vessels or vehicles.

The equipment will support soldiers to infiltrate a hostile zone and approach the target area to collect intelligence without being detected. The system can scan any radar signal and analyse its characteristics to find out how the enemy uses its surveillance systems and how they can be neutralised.

The system's robust algorithms integrate advanced artificial intelligence techniques to learn how to characterise radar pulses with increasing precision, how to operate in dense electromagnetic environments and how to identify the most effective countermeasures.

The information gathered by soldiers will facilitate the work of countermeasure teams and help them counter enemy systems by disrupting their signal. The manpack is also able to exchange information in real time with other units and help create an electronic defence network. The data is then sent to the command center for planning and oversight.
