US Army Testing New EW System In Fort Irwin

The US military command relies on the development of electronic warfare technologies. This is evidenced by new budgetary injections in this type of development. Already there is a demonstration of new American-made electronic warfare systems.


US Army Testing New EW System In Fort Irwin


As noted by the American portal Defense Blog, at the moment the US Army is developing a tool for planning and managing electronic warfare. We are talking about the EWPMT system for the management and control of electronic warfare systems with support for military operations.

From the material:

According to the Service News US Army, thanks to EWPMT, you can now visually combine their capabilities in an electromagnetic attack, targeting and surveillance, to ensure maneuverability. This tool also improves management operations and helps in the process of collecting information.

The EWPMT system launches an automated workflow, distributing information across the entire center of tactical operations. Operators themselves can activate funds in the most dangerous area, provide a tactical “picture” to support the operation. The electronic spectrum itself is capable of visualizing such a system - that is, showing where a radio-electronic attack can be carried out from.

The United States notes that the new system is an important component for the so-called multi-domain wars.

A group of US Army officers is testing new EW technology at Fort Irwin National Training Center, California.

It uses VMAX - a portable electronic support system and at the same time an electronic attack system. It is used to search, monitor, determine the location of emitters in real time during tactical operations.

From a statement by an American officer:

The purpose of using the electronic warfare system is to create an advantage in the electromagnetic spectrum to enable soldiers to maneuver on the battlefield.

    I understand everything, but why did they mount a short fragment with the APU tank in the video? I would think in the place of the Ukrainians, with whom are the Americans going to fight with this equipment?

      I think for them there is no difference between Russian and Ukrainian tanks))). It is sadly different - that for us the creation of such a global ACS system using electronic warfare systems is not even close at all possible.

          Do we have a sufficient number of Lianes hidden there, as well as aircraft and AWACS UAVs? And also command ground mobile centers that receive and process information from them in real time and issue target designations for specific EW assets in the theater of operations? I strongly doubt it, especially understanding this technology as a former asushnik, true air defense ...

            There are systems for detecting EMR sources with their subsequent classification with transmission to the control center in real time. It’s just not advertised. But I can’t say how quickly the radio suppression will occur. This was no longer in my competence.

        Greetings Comrade Big Cat hi
        But after all, there was recently information just about testing something like an automated control system by means of electronic warfare, they talked about the prospects for combining the potentials of different systems both in terms of intelligence and suppression, they wrote about the so-called. "EM-hit" ??? In the news about the air defense it was said that now the work of RTV and electronic warfare systems is being synchronized more and more. Everyone is lying or what?

          Greetings. Why are they lying? It’s just that now it’s all in developments at different stages and projects, as far as I know (I suspect in projects of the Soviet era). And in the best times of the USSR, when I served in air defense, the full radar coverage and ACS system, respectively, was and really worked, although mainly within the boundaries of the Moscow Military District.

            Let's hope that the army will not be forgotten either "under the guise" of all these digital economies: they will finish the constellation and weave the most powerful electronic warfare into it, otherwise why are all these drones being created? drinks

    And American cartoons - is this serious? Or are they cartoons?
    The main question is - why did they so eagerly take up electronic warfare? Or did they just not have it? Striped ears never admit that they are at least inferior to someone ... It is simply impossible for them, America Fest - and that’s it !!!

        So it’s like that, but as they say - a chicken is full on a grain of grain.

        Because if you start developing electronic warfare, it suddenly turns out that all the electronics will not work. And the West, in the R&D of radio electronics, more than one trillion $ swelled. And now what is all this money down the drain?
        Therefore, they bypassed the EW side))

    They've always done it. Read at least "ZVO" for the 80s - 90s. There was not a single journal without articles on electronic warfare. And the wars in the Gulf showed what can be done with electronic warfare. When the level of interference was such that all air defense systems were inoperative

    They began to introduce electronic warfare systems in the ground forces.
    In this they have a lag.
    So far, only in aviation among the Americans has electronic warfare well developed.
    Every third F-18 - Growler - jammer. The F-16 container
    Suspended as necessary, if there is a shock operation.
    The F-35 EW is mounted in the fuselage and is part of the radar.

    Spend a lot of money, as always! As for efficiency, this is not necessary, at least at the first stage .... the main thing is the process itself !!! Which can be advertised and sold to anyone.

    You have no doubt, for the manuals are not the same.
    And everything is fine with us, and what the Americans are trying to do now is like Patriot vs. S-400: the thing is good, much more expensive, there is only one drawback - the efficiency is much lower

    But the same tasks were solved by our station AKUP-22 (automated jamming control complex) in the early 80s (there are probably cooler ones now). The data were received (by telecode) from passive stations of direction finding of radiation of the POST3M type radar ("shepherdess"), direction finders of radio channels of the "Igla-5" type, from the P-15 type radar to "clarify" the air situation. And then, to protect the object, commands were given to turn on and target SPN-s (jamming means) depending on the threats. Everything was clear enough on the circular indicator of the ACUP. The programmable computer was "still the same", but the concept is quite for the future. Telecode exchange was carried out with the control center of the air defense compound. For the mid-80s, it's quite an EWPMT.
