UAE-based SIGN4L, a provider of electronic warfare and intelligence (EW&I) solutions, launched two new capabilities on the opening day of IDEX 2021.
V-Protect, a radio frequency (RF) communication jamming system, and NavControl-G, a specialised counter-drone capability, were unveiled at the EDGE pavilion. SIGN4L is part of the Electronic Warfare & Intelligence cluster at EDGE, an UAE-based conglomerate that is among the top 25 military suppliers in the world.
V-Protect is an advanced mobile active and reactive high-power jammer system that blocks common terrestrial RF signal technologies as well as portable satcom equipment, spanning radio, walkie-talkie, mobile and Wi-Fi frequencies. Having a counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) and counter-drone measures, the system can be installed on a standard SUV and offers automatic operability by utilizing 16 channels and high emitting power amplifiers to provide support in enhancing protection range and combatting various threats across the frequency domain.
NavControl-G is designed to help prevent unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from trespassing into specific locations. To help safeguard a sensitive area, the system can emulate GPS signals to generate position and timing inaccuracies, thus taking control of non-cooperating unmanned vehicles. Encased in a shock-proof container, the system can be integrated across multiple configurations – either in fixed locations or deployed on the field when required.
“Electronic warfare and intelligence make up the backbone of modern defence and security systems,” said Waleid Al Mesmari, Vice President of Program Management for the Electronic Warfare & Intelligence cluster at EDGE. “SIGN4L is at the frontlines in pioneering breakthrough technologies that help our clients expand their options in a rapidly changing world. By assisting our clients with the management of their complex security and performance requirements, our latest solutions are prime examples of our agile offerings at work that focus energy to obscure, neutralise and attack adversaries.”
SIGN4L develops, acquires and supplies lifecycle support for defence and security forces in three areas: Integrated electronic warfare technologies, aircraft electronic survivability systems, and Intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) sensors.
