Allen-Vanguard (Booth 800) has launched Scorpion 2, the latest addition to its electronic countermeasures (ECM) product line.
Scorpion 2 is a so ware-defined man-portable ECM system that is programmable across its entire operating range of 20MHz to 6GHz, enabling it to provide highly effective protection against all current or emerging radio control IED threats. It can be customised for use in various roles, such as military foot patrol, VIP protection, EOD carry forward, special response teams and static or infrastructure protection.
Lighter, smaller and thinner than its predecessor, Scorpion 2 can operate in fully active, fully responsive or hybrid modes. It has a built-in GPS antenna/receiver that facilitates generation of a 1PPS signal to allow synchronisation and interoperability with other friendly-force ECM systems in the near vicinity.
