27 Jun 07. Allen-Vanguard, is launching a RF Field Monitor enabling operators to test the effectiveness of Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) equipment or ‘jammers’ while it is deployed. ECM systems, designed to protect targets from potential terrorist attack by Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices, are designed for security to give no indication of their method of working, or even that a system is powered up. The RF monitor is unique to Allen-Vanguard and provides a simple confidence check that an ECM system is fully operational.
This hand held battery powered device gives a clear indication to the operator on the ground that an ECM system is operating correctly and emitting RF energy on each of the designated output channels. For instance, where an ECM system is protecting a convoy of vehicles, individuals along the convoy can check their own RF Field Monitor to be reassured that the ECM system is functioning. This is particularly helpful for people who have no technical knowledge of ECM systems or any role to play in their deployment but who rely on the ECM systems to get them home safely.
27 Jun 07. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] conducted a successful low endo-atmospheric test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) Weapon System interceptor, at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), NM. Last night’s flight test was of the THAAD interceptor only; there was no target. Preliminary data indicate the THAAD flight test successfully met all objectives including interceptor launch, booster and kill vehicle separation, shroud separation in a low endo-flight environment, kill vehicle control and evaluation of the heating effects on the interceptor mid-body in a low endo-flight environment. This is the final flight test scheduled to take place at WSMR. Additional flight testing of the THAAD Weapon System is under way at the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) on the Hawaiian island of Kauai and will continue there through 2009.
