BAE Systems unveils DARPA-funded handheld combat technology

Through a contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, BAE Systems has developed a new lightweight, handheld tactical sensor that troops can easily carry and use to better understand radio frequency signals for enhanced situational awareness.

By using cognitive processing algorithms, the handheld electronic warfare technology can detect and identify multiple interfering signals, such as jammers or enemy communication signals, across a wide spectrum and in changing and challenging environments. The new capability can be leveraged across multiple platforms and can integrate into a variety of electronic warfare, signals intelligence and signal receiver and communication systems, both large and small.
