US continues effort to harden UAVs against electromagnetic attack
DARPA is bringing its Collaborative Operations in Denied Environments (CODE) initiative to a conclusion, with the programme transitioning to the USN.
CODE was one of DARPA’s leading efforts to address air operations in electromagnetically contested environments. The programme will continue under the auspices of the USN’s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and is specifically aimed at UAVs and their ability to perform missions in environments where the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum may be under sustained attack.
These attacks could include the deliberate jamming of a UAV’s RF links which connect the aircraft to its ground control station. They ...

Enhancing electronic support to achieve spectrum dominance within multi-domain operations (sponsored)
Activity in the Electro-Magnetic Environment (EME) is increasingly focused towards supporting digital sources. The rise of wide area networking, mobile communications and automation across civilian and defence applications, means key sections of the spectrum are highly congested and, from a military perspective, increasingly contested. This growth is likely to be sustained through the proliferation of devices exploiting digitally enabled functionality through automation, internet of things and space-based data services.
In the data-rich information age in which we live, the concept of Information Advantage has become a fundamental shift in how the armed forces prosecute warfare.
