Airports May Get Remote, Automatic "Intrusion Alert Plus"
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected BAE
SYSTEMS to develop miniaturized, unattended ground sensors capable
of detecting, identifying and jamming communications and radar
threat signals for the "WolfPack" program. The Wolfpack program
will provide technologies that help the warfighter monitor and
disrupt enemy communications and radar signals, while protecting
BAE SYSTEMS Information & Electronic Warfare Systems (IEWS),
Nashua, New Hampshire, received a two-year, $22.8 million award
from DARPA's Advanced Technology Office on March 25.
Aaron Penkacik, vice president of IEWS Advanced Systems and
Technology organization, said, "This critical future capability is
important to the military. It is likely to change the way our
forces prosecute electronic warfare missions such as surveillance
and electronic countermeasures."
Wolfpack consists of small, unattended sensors that can be
placed at areas of interest by a variety of methods. Once deployed,
individual "wolves" (sensors), self-organize into "packs" to
determine optimum detection and jamming strategies. In each "pack,"
gateway nodes provide data to users, and the system can detect and
jam many threat signals.
Just hope the bad guys don't get these...
