STORM H is an individual, wearable Radio-Controlled IED (RCIED)
counter-measure jammer, designed to protect dismounted troops
on foot patrols. The device is sized similar to a hand-held
radio, and can be worn in a pouch or pocket, or clipped to webbing.
These new devices enable dismounted
troops to safely move away from the restricted field of operation
immediately surrounding an ECM vehicle or the ECM member of
a foot patrol, enabling each individual soldier to move freely,
taking their IED protection with them.
The system covers the 20-470 Mhz waveband with fully programmable
control, enabling mission profiling, interoperability with communications
systems an operational flexibility, making it adaptable to changing
threat environments. The man portable system is a low power
module. When mounted in the vehicular docking station, a power
amplifier is used to boost the signal to 10 watts, thereby increasing
the protection bubble while charging the batteries.
