UK develops CEMA deception device

Giles Ebbutt, Plymouth - Jane's International Defence Review

20 November 2019

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) is developing a Cyber and Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) deception device and revealed some details during the Autonomous Advanced Force 2.0 experiment in November 2019. The effort is a partnership between the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Roke.

A Dstl representative told Jane's that the aim of the project is to develop a device that can emulate radio frequency signals to provide deception against electronic countermeasures (ECM) and direction finding (DF).

He said the device is based on a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software-defined radio (SDR) and two variants have been developed so far. One has been trialled mounted on a Digital Concepts Engineering X2 unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), building on an operational concept which seeks to utilise UGVs to deliver a deception effect. A number of similarly equipped UGVs could emulate an armoured sub-unit.
