U.S ARMY GETS ELECTRONIC WARFARE TACTICAL VEHICLE (EWTV)


United States Army now has its own Electronic
Warfare Tactical Vehicles (EWTV). As per reports, the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat
Team “Greywolf,” 1st Cavalry Division fielded the Army’s new EWTV recently and is testing
it. The U.S Army’s Rapid Equipping Force is
driving this program. The Rapid Equipping Force provides out of
box solution to U.S Army’s pressing requirements that are time taking to acquire through the
traditional procurement process. The EWTV is part of an effort to enhance the
US Army’s capabilities in the area of electronic warfare (EW). It is developed to meet the US Army’s need
to detect & jam enemy communications and network. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes Electronic
Warfare Tactical Vehicle of U.S Army. Let’s get started. Potential rivals of U.S especially Russia
has been investing in land-based EW systems. In Syria, many such systems like Leer-3, Krasuha
are deployed. There were many reports that some U.S drones
were affected by these EW systems and their operation had to be cut short. Jamming through EW can be done through many
ways, the basic includes blocking the target from receiving GPS signals and communication
from the base. US has been behind in terms of deploying land-based
mobile EW systems and had no operational system till now. U.S Army relies on Air Force & Navy, which
have many EW systems including dedicated EW warplane like the EA-18G Growler. A land mobile EW system will provide much-needed
flexibility and operation freedom to the U.S Army. This is where the US Army’s new Electronic
Warfare Tactical Vehicle comes in. Lt. Col. Scott Schumacher, chief of the Rapid
Equipping Force solutions team, said in a release, “This effort will allow the ability for EW
Soldiers to influence future vehicle improvements and grow their knowledge. This is an advanced EW technology that can provide the Army new offensive and defensive capabilities.” The system basically has two parts: Platform
& Jammer. The platform chosen is the MaxxPro MRAP (Mine
Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle. It is designed by American company Navistar
International’s subsidiary Navistar Defense along with the Israeli Plasan Sasa, who designed
and manufactures the vehicle’s armor. The vehicle was initially designed to compete
in the US Military’s Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle program, led by the US Marine
Corps as well as in Medium Mine Protected Vehicle program, led by U.S Army. The jammer deployed is the CREW Duke electronic
warfare system developed by SRC. As per the manufacturer, the CREW Duke system
uses an advanced software-defined architecture that supports rapid reconfiguration to adapt
to the constantly evolving threat environment. The system is easy to program and allows the
operator to target the particular frequencies. The system’s compact size and low power consumption
make it ideal for mounting in vehicles. Viewers may note that the Duke system was
selected as one of the U.S. Army’s Top 10 Greatest Inventions in 2005 and 2009. SRC has stated that its engineers have continuously
enhanced the system with many upgrades. Though in an initial stage, it can be very
well said that with the deployment of Electronic Warfare Tactical Vehicles, US Army is taking
steps in the right direction.

    Seriously? Just know? How far behind is the U.S. compared to Russia? Russia already has this weapon so i thought the U.S. must have long had it. I'm shocked 😕 Russia showed off their EMP weapons when they shut down the U.S. ship that was in the black sea and flew over it a couple of times, everyone knows that story but does the American's already have EMP weapons too or are they also behind their and seriously though what are the U.S. army doing with all that money because they are far behind not only Russian Tech but China is catching up too. They have a bigger budget what are they doing with the money?

    ECW the Russians deployed in SyriA was said to be superior to any ECW the US has. The US military really dropped the ball when it shutdown and defunded it's r&d after the 90s.

    USA has bet for a total air superiority doctrine (including EW). But Syria is a multi-vector contested warfare. In a tactical level US troops do not have any EW tools to protect themselves against drones. and Syria is a Drone party.

    That image of a vehicle is nothing, most of those antennas are simply HF, there's some microwave antennas, but nothing that can be directed or is high-power. Likely the microwave antennas are for receiving local transmissions of microwave for cell-phones – that vehicle appears to be just a regular HF/VHF and microwave communications vehicle. I see nothing special on it.
