US Navy Tested New EW Complex

25
In the coming years, the US Navy will receive additional protection against anti-ship missiles. Press office Corporation Lockheed Martin reports that the prototype of the complex of electronic warfare AN / ALQ-248, developed for helicopters of type MH-60, completed the passage of the first phase of testing. According to the developers, the creation of a promising EW system is proceeding according to the previously approved schedule.

US Navy Tested New EW Complex

Schematic representation of the principle of operation of the complex AN / ALQ-248



New EW systems will allow launches of enemy anti-ship missiles and transfer information to the ship’s on-board systems. The command of the US Navy believes that the presence of such systems on a helicopter will make it possible to record the launch of missiles much earlier, and also more accurately track their trajectories already at the initial stage of movement. In the event that a rocket threatens the ship, the EW system activates countermeasure systems (for example, by creating a false electronic signal).

The AOEW AMP AN / ALQ-248 complex is designed as a suspension container for MH-60R or MH-60S helicopters (anti-submarine and multi-purpose modification of Seahawk helicopters). In this case, the system operates autonomously from the on-board electronics of the helicopter and does not require pilot intervention. If necessary, the new EW complex can "mask" missile launches from American ships. The complex can operate autonomously or in conjunction with the onboard system of the ship, giving it the ability to respond early to threats. Representatives of the company Lockheed Martin indicate that the mass production of AOEW AMP AN / ALQ-248 will be established before the 2019 year, and by the 2021 year, the complexes will be installed on US Navy helicopters, reports "Warspot"

        Judging by the general description, they just want to add launch fixation devices and coordinates of low-flying targets. Something like Chain Mail - three helicopters passively detect the radiation of the PB missiles and determine their coordinates. Conceptually - nothing new, but technically - nothing is known at all.

    Yeah! Mattresses aroused. Late to drink Borjomi. Although, a good reason for cutting the budget. Anchor to you in the anus, partners.

    In terms of electronic warfare, I am not an expert, but I will follow the worker-peasant logic (this is closer to me):

    And if the weather is non-flying?

    In addition, there are probably places in the World Ocean where flying weather rarely occurs. What to do in such cases? Declare a truce?

    Moreman, enlighten, plz, how does this happen?

    My question is - is it possible by means of RB to display a text (for example, the proverbial word of three letters) on the screen of an enemy’s radar?

    In my opinion, the integrated complex is much better than the suspended one, even if the hanging container is a very vulnerable target.

      Getting into the container is much harder than getting into the helicopter itself.

        Those. if they get into the helicopter carrier (which means its knockout), do you think it means that everything will be okay with the container?
        Well, okay, I understand you.

        Strange you argue. Getting into a helicopter 100% destruction of systems, they are mounted in a hanging container or in the helicopter itself does not matter.
        But with the hanging container there is still the issue of power supply, the onboard generator will pull out, then the additional generator, the fuel tank and off it went, it took off and the firewood ran out

        And there was no catch or trick at all.
        They entered without knocking, almost without sound,
        They put a bamboo club into action,
        The bale is right in the crown and there is no Cook.
        But there is, however, still an assumption,
        What Cook ate out of great respect!

      From the word "Analog" you probably just flatters ...

      AN / ALQ-248.
      The usual designation.
      Military electronics destination REP and EW in service with the United States.
      How to decipher it.
      AN / ALQ-248
      AN / - adopted. standard sample.
      A - aviation
      L - counteraction
      Q - highly specialized or combined
      -248 is just a serial number.
      As an example of many such notation.
