ECM effectiveness tester from RF Field Monitor.

Allen Vanguard : 27 June, 2007  (New Product)
Allen-Vanguard are providing test facilities for assessing the effectiveness of jammers to protect from radio controlled IEDs.
Allen-Vanguard, world leader in internal security, is launching a RF Field Monitor enabling operators to test the effectiveness of Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) equipment or 'jammers' while it is deployed.

ECM systems, designed to protect targets from potential terrorist attack by Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices, are designed for security to give no indication of their method of working, or even that a system is powered up. The RF monitor is unique to Allen-Vanguard and provides a simple confidence check that an ECM system is fully operational.

This hand held battery powered device gives a clear indication to the operator on the ground that an ECM system is operating correctly and emitting RF energy on each of the designated output channels. For instance, where an ECM system is protecting a convoy of vehicles, individuals along the convoy can check their own RF Field Monitor to be reassured that the ECM system is functioning. This is particularly helpful for people who have no technical knowledge of ECM systems or any role to play in their deployment but who rely on the ECM systems to get them home safely.

"The threat from Radio Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices is escalating, and consequently ECM equipment is getting more complex and sophisticated," said Roy Peers-Smith, Managing Director at Allen-Vanguard. "The RF Monitor is designed to give a rapid confirmation of the correct operation and installation of an ECM system while it is in use. This device will facilitate the tasks of teams dealing with the threat of RCIEDs, ranging from EOD render-safe procedures, event and venue protection, force protection and VIP protection."
