DARPA selects BAE to develop new counter to modern radars

Future US jamming systems may be able to react in real-time to counter unfamiliar radar signals under the Adaptive Radar Countermeasures (ARC) programme, a $13.3 million contract awarded to BAE Systems last month by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Early versions of the jamming technology could become available as a software and firmware upgrade for US fighters after 2018, says John Tranquilli, technical director for signals and communications processing at BAE. That makes ARC a potential player in the constant struggle for supremacy of the radio frequency spectrum in an electronic war stretching back decades between radars and jamming systems. Jamming systems still rely on classified databases of known emitter signals. As radars emit energy, an onboard receiver characterises the incoming signal and and compares it against the…
