Called the Advanced Dynamic Spectrum Reconnaissance (ADSR), the technology allows the service’s wireless communications networks to sense and dodge enemy jamming.
According to the US Army, the state-of-the-art tool was recently deployed by an electronic warfare unit during a multinational exercise in Germany.
“Sensing capabilities that provide a real-time understanding of the spectrum drive our efforts to identify the enemy’s electromagnetic signature so we can rapidly deliver effects on the battlefield,” cyber warfare officer Brenden Shutt said .
The ADSR is one of the first projects under the Army Research Laboratory’s Pathfinder program that aims to solve some of the service’s toughest problems on the battlefield.
It was developed by a team of researchers at Vanderbilt University and sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
According to the developers, the technology has been continually refined since 2021, undergoing a series of operational tests in the US and Romania.
