Brig. Gen. Neil Thurgood: Army Tests Missile Defense System Against Radar Jam Tool

StockMissileLaunchMDAA U.S. Army official has said the military branch has conducted a military exercise to test the capacity of an Integrated Air & Missile Defense Battle Command System to counter an adversary’s radar jamming capability, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Brig. Gen. Neil Thurgood, Army program executive officer for missiles and space, said at the Space & Missile Defense conference that the exercise at  White Sands Missile Range generated 70 terabytes of data.

Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. writes the IBCS is designed to connect sensors with command posts and launchers and works to combine data from various radars into one “composite track” against the real target if an enemy jams or spoofs a battery’s radar of an anti-missile system.

Thurgood said the service branch will hold another wargame in 2017 to test the IBCS against several electronic warfare platforms.
