Active Radio Frequencies Protection Systems

Replace Existing Systems


Improvised Explosive Devices threats continue to predominate the modern-day battlefield, particularly in those countries or failed-states that foster insurgencies. This project will ensure technological readiness to meet these evolving threats for the Canadian Armed Forces land forces in theatres of operations. This capability will contribute to denying adversarial use of the electromagnetic spectrum for initiating Improvised Explosive Devices and is interdependant with the broader Canadian Forces Land Electronic Warfare Modernisation project.


These systems will have built-in sensors to detect radio frequency energy, assess whether this energy is friend/foe/unknown and in turn output energy directed at selected hostile targets, thereby neutralizing the intended hostile effects. This project will acquire the next generation of radio controlled improvised explosive devices defence systems for use in training and expeditionary operations.
