Roke extends electronic warfare capability with TriQuad system

7th May 2010 - 20:07 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Roke Manor Research today launches the latest addition to its RESOLVE electronic warfare suite. The TriQuad system will extend the capability of Roke's lightweight man-portable solution by providing dismounted soldiers with a high accuracy DF (direction finding) capability for HF, VHF and UHF frequencies.

The TriQuad system is comprised of two antenna elements which when deployed together provide complete coverage between 2MHz to 3GHz. Alternatively, each antenna can be used separately to suit the frequency coverage required for the mission profile. This modular approach gives the end-user the capability to deploy only the equipment required at the time, whilst still maintaining the potential for full coverage if circumstances rapidly change.

Gavin O'Connell, EW Operations Manager at Roke, said: "Roke is focused on maximising flexibility and functionality for troops in the field, and the development of TriQuad reinforces our position as a leading developer of electronic warfare equipment. For many dismounted troops the field of operation changes quickly. Electronic warfare operations in today's battle space therefore require intuitive, lightweight and rapidly deployable manpack systems to effectively monitor the diverse tactical environment."


RESOLVE is a modular and scalable electronic warfare (EW) system for the intercept and geolocation of communications. RESOLVE offers users a flexible EW solution to exploit a wide band of communications. Its modular design allows a single RESOLVE node to be re-deployed in the field to meet a variety of mission profiles:

· A light manpack configuration for operations on-the-march

· Tripod mounted for semi-static discreet operations

· On/integrated into mobile platforms for on-the-move operations.
