Vehicle-borne IED jammer passes Spanish exam

21st December 2020 - 13:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

More than 50 C-Guard units delivered out of order for more then 320 kits.

Netline Communications Technologies has completed testing and evaluation of the C-Guard RJ vehicular counter-IED system in Spain, with prototype installations on 12 types of vehicle.

Following the successful testing process conducted with local partner Aicox Soluciones, the Spanish Army has accepted delivery of more than 50 jamming systems ‘as the first serial batch of a total order for over 320 kits’, Netline noted in a 21 December statement.

The Israeli company is providing C-Guard RJ vehicular jamming systems for various branches of the Spanish armed forces. The Spanish MoD awarded a €65 million ($79.15 million) framework contract in August 2019 following competitive field trials.

Netline describes C-Guard RJ is a highly flexible and resilient radio-controlled counter-IED reactive jamming system. Designed to counter an extensive range of threats, the system constantly scans the spectrum and responds to any detected transmissions by focusing the jamming signal and power to defeat the threat.

While the company refrains from providing specific details regarding the wavebands that C-Guard covers, Shephard Defence Insight assumes that it encompasses the 300MHz-3GHz waveband.

This would allow the system to jam numerous cellular and wireless communications protocols, alongside civilian, commercial and military radio wavebands and other wavebands used by remote controlled devices.
