Block the signals [ES2016D3]

15 June 2016

Suppressing enemy radio signals on the battlefield not only adds a significant advantage, but is also a valuable protection measure for own troops. Bulgarian company Samel-90 (Hall 6, Stand H287) is showcasing its SVJ-2600 mobile jammer this week, claimed to be the world’s biggest. Displayed on a pickup truck, the SVJ-2600 operates on the 20-6,000MHz frequency band, with 44 frequency sub-bands operated by means of a remote control unit installed inside the vehicle.

Samel-90 has more than 50 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of defence and civil products, including radio jamming systems, field telephones, VHF radios, mobile communication shelters and integrated digital field communication systems.

The range of Samel-90 radio jammers on display comprise manpack, portable and stationary units, designed to protect against remote-controlled improvised explosive devices (IEDs) aimed at individuals or a group of moving objects, people or other small targets.

According to the company’s Artur Sikorski, the vehicle-mounted radio jammer is similarly intended for protection against radio frequency-controlled IEDs or similar devices.

An innovative artillery radio jammer is delivered by artillery rounds in 122mm, 130mm, 152mm and 155mm calibres into the area to be jammed. It is intended to create barrage jamming in the enemy’s tactical control units operating in the HF and VHF 1.5-120MHz frequency bands.
