Roke expands EW range
Roke Manor Research has announced that it has expanded its RESOLVE Electronic Warfare (EW) range to include permanent vehicle fixtures and static mast-mounted deployments. The company made the announcement on 28 February 2012.
According to Roke, the new systems extend RESOLVE's modular manpack capabilities, allowing it to be fitted to a variety of platforms, whilst maintaining the flexibility to be easily dismounted for use in complex terrain or discreet operations. The system won The Queen's Awards for Enterprise and Innovation earlier this year.
The enhancements have increased both the range and sensitivity of the RESOLVE system. MastSensor is a static mast-mounted antenna which can be installed to fixed masts up to 50 metres tall. By digitising at the antenna, RF losses through the cable are minimised. An optional addition to MastSensor, the MastQuad, provides increased sensitivity and DF accuracy at the lower operating frequencies, and seamless coverage from 20MHz to 3GHz.
The vehicle mounted VQuad antenna delivers an increased range and also enables the vehicle to conduct on-the-move position fixes. The company said that the changes will address the need for intuitive and rapidly deployable EW systems to monitor the constantly changing communications terrain, delivering even more flexibility as the system can be easily configured to meet specific operational requirements.
