LONDON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A new electronic jamming system for stand-alone use or integration into other electronic warfare systems has been introduced by Britain-headquartered Selex ES.

The system is called Communications Denial Sub-System, or CoDeSS, which uses spot jamming, barrage jamming and sweep jamming together with other tactics tailored to threat types within the HF and UHF communication bands.

CoDeSS is highly controllable to ensure that friendly forces are not adversely affected.

Selex ES launched the modular design product this week. It consists of MF, HF, VHF and UHF receivers, waveform generators/exciters, power amplifiers, transmit/receive antennas and up to three operator workstations for overall control, management and monitoring.

"Integrated into 19-inch equipment racks for fixed shelter or wheeled, shock-protected mobile applications, CoDeSS can simultaneously jam up to 32 conventional or frequency agile threats across the 20MHz to 3GHz bands," the company said. "Each sub-band has its own power amplifier and receiver, ensuring that an individual module failure does not affect the ability to attack other frequency bands."
