  • Electronic Counter Measures.

Equipment designed to confuse active sensors and conceal the target from such equipment.

The nature of ECM can range from relatively simple devices intended to block or provide confusing returns to active sensors through to weapons intended to neutralise navigation, communication and sensor equipment by reducing or preventing the use of the electromagnetic spectrum.

These Electronic Attack ECM systems can be particularly effective in preventing enemy weapons platforms (including missiles) acquiring and maintaining lock on a target. Interfering and degrading the performance of sensor systems is of critical value to the survival of the target.
