L3Harris has developed a device designed to mitigate the effect of co-site interference between communications devices and electronic warfare (EW) equipment, and revealed it at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) annual meeting in Washington, DC, in October.
HalcyonLink restores communications that would otherwise be blocked by an EW system, such as a counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) system operating from the same platform as a tactical radio. An L3Harris representative told Jane’s that it had been developed for the US Army under the Interference Cancellation – Light (IC-Light) programme.
The system uses L3Harris’s Advanced Interference Mitigation System, which works by sampling the outgoing interfering radio frequency (RF) signal and creating a mirror image of it with the same characteristics, such as phase and amplitude.
