According to a press release published on December 21, 2020, Netline Communications Technologies Ltd. - a leading developer and manufacturer of high-end electronic warfare and spectrum dominance systems for defense forces and homeland security agencies –has completed the acceptance procedure of 51 improvised explosive device (IED) jammers by the Spanish Ministry of Defense.
The project is part of a €65 million framework contract awarded to the company in August 2019, under which Netline is scheduled to deliver C-Guard RJ vehicular jamming systems for the different branches of the Spanish armed forces.
Designed to be mounted on vehicles, Netline’s C-Guard RJ is a highly flexible and resilient radio-controlled (RC) counter-IED reactive jamming system. Providing reactive coverage to counter an extensive range of threats, the system constantly scans the spectrum and responds to any detected transmissions by focusing the jamming signal and power to defeat the threat.
The system has been designed to provide military forces engaged in operational activity with easy and efficient system operation and simple replacement of new modules, which can be carried out by the operating teams (O-level)with nearly zero downtime.
“Despite its complexity, we have carried out the process of testing and evaluating the 12 prototype installations and achieved acceptance of the first serial production batch, in accordance with the agreed schedule,” said Yallon Bahat, CEO of Netline. “This is thanks to the close and successful cooperation with the Spanish MODand our local partner, Aicox Soluciones, which has continued in spite of the challenging period we are currently in, with its various limitations on travel and meetings.", he added.
The selection of Netline company by the Spanish MOD followed a process that included both technical laboratory testing and field trials, in which Netline C-Guard RJ C-IED competed against systems offered by significant players in the field. The success of Netline in this stringent selection process is definitely a vote of confidence in the company and its advanced jamming capabilities, and the company anticipates that NATO and other countries that are fighting in different areas of conflict around the world will follow in Spain’s footsteps and also test Netline systems with a view to procurement.
