Italian Air Force & Elettronica Cooperating to Improve New Solutions on Escort Jamming Capabilities
 
Elletronica and the Italian Air Force team up to share their expertise with the aim of employing advanced technologies to produce a state-of-the-art pod designed specifically as "Escort Jammer". The Italian Air Force believes that a significant step forward is needed to boost airborne EW capability in the close future and is willing to share its competencies in the field to assist Elettronica in its project.

Elettronica envisions that an innovative EJ solution based on a podded configuration will ensure flexibilite in usage and easy configuration on the existing pylon adaptors.

Elettronica has been selected for the achieved maturity of their key technologies such as the Antenna Electronically Scanned Array (AESA), Solid State Receivers and Transmitters, Digital Receiver (DRx), Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM) and for the experience gained in the operational field for airborne, ground and naval EW solutions.

The Escort Jammer under this framework will cope with demanding scenarios for interception and effectively jamming of a wide range of complex radar threats with very high effective radiated power (ERP).
