Raytheon has been awarded a two-year contract for $3.8 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to allow the military services to conduct jamming operations with minimal communication and control interference to friendly forces, the company said.
The company aims to produce a technology demonstration to show the ability to efficiently generate high-power, rapidly tunable linear microwave signals across a broad range of frequencies, Raytheon added.
The High-Power Efficient Rf Digital-to-Analog Converter program seeks to enable tactical platforms, such as maritime craft, ground vehicles, tactical aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, along with individual service members, to conduct battlefield jamming operations while minimizing frequency interference with friendly forces, the company said.
