Today’s evolving battlefield has moved from conventional warfare tactics to advanced countermeasures using the electromagnetic spectrum. Peraton is ready with Citadel II, a tactical solution essential to protecting our national security.
Modern warfare is increasingly dependent on use of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. A fighting force that can prevent an enemy from communicating or using electronic means to detonate explosives has a distinct advantage on the battlefield. Peraton’s support for electronic warfare (EW) gives warfighters the ability to thwart an attack by denying the enemy access to the EM spectrum while remaining interoperable with friendly countermeasures systems. Dominating the electronic warfare environment helps keep our warfighters safe.
Citadel II has been Peraton’s tactical-level solution since 2008. It can be carried by an individual or deployed by a robot to jam signals intended to detonate explosives remotely and is an essential tool in asymmetric and irregular warfare.
