Exelis (NYSE:XLS) has unveiled a system to allow continued communications in a heavily jammed battlefield environment. The small, lightweight Integrated Protection and Transmission System (iProTxS) can be quickly integrated with existing radios and electronic countermeasure (ECM) equipment on both mounted and dismounted platforms.

The use of jamming on the battlefield by coalition forces has become increasingly common and complex, making effective communications difficult. Jammers are typically located close to tactical radios, both physically and in the radio frequency domain, placing significant constraints on communications and battlefield effectiveness.

A single iProTxS system can be paired with as many radio systems as needed within an ECM system area of operation, providing an easy and affordable solution. The system integrates with narrowband FM radio systems, AM systems, digital 4-FSK frequency hopping, VHF, UHF, combat net radio, TETRA and professional mobile radio frequencies.

“We are excited to bring this capability to our products to help improve operational communications in difficult jamming environments,” said Nick Bobay, president of Exelis Night Vision and Tactical Communications Systems.

Exelis will incorporate this technology into its wide-ranging product portfolio to enhance the capability of radios for its customers. Production of iProTxS will take place at the Exelis Defence Limited facility located in Basingstoke, U.K., with sales to eligible international customers around the world.
