US Army Looking for Anti-Drone Jammer Solution
The U.S. Army’s Aviation and Missile Command is seeking potential sources of portable anti-drone jammers that can interfere with control, video and navigation signals within a range of at least 5 km.
The AMC’s Integrated Fires Rapid Capabilities Office-International plans to deliver up to 100 handheld SkyWiper EDM4S devices to undisclosed U.S. allies. Among the current recipients of air defense technology from the Department of Defense are Ukraine and Israel, DefenseScoop reported.
According to a request for information, the equipment should weigh less than 16 lb and should enable electronic warfare capabilities by activating the trigger. The device should have at least six radio frequency modules, including 2.4GHz, 2xGNSS 1.5GHz and 1.2GHz, 5.8GHz and at least two custom frequency modules that cannot be modified by users. The Army also requires the use of high-gain directional antennas for accuracy and efficiency and a robust frame.
Lithuania’s NT Service UAB currently produces EDM4S Skywiper systems, which the company bills as a one-man, point-and-shoot anti-drone solution.
Interested parties should submit their responses to the RFI by Nov. 13.
