Marine Corps Unveils Vehicle-Mounted Threat Detection Technology

The U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command intends to mobilize a vehicle-mounted tool that will allow warfighters to track enemy movement.

The planned system will combine electronic capabilities to help the branch validate threats through the electromagnetic spectrum from a specific position, the Marines said Wednesday.

The branch tested different types of electromagnetic displays and user interfaces to confirm the need for updates to maintain the system's usability.

"We will be able to do all of the functions of similar systems as well as sense and then display what is going on in the electronic spectrum,” said Thomas Dono, team lead of command elements systems at MCSC. “Then we can communicate that to Marines for their decision-making process."

Systems Command uses a rapid approach to deploy the tool in the first quarter of 2020 and gradually boost its functionality.
