美国陆军正在研究新的电磁欺骗工具

美国陆军正在设计一种新的欺骗工具,称为模块化电磁频谱欺骗套件或MEDS。
华盛顿消息—美国陆军正在开发一种新工具,以在类似猫和老鼠游戏中获得优势,这就是美国陆军在电磁频谱作战中的任务。

目前,在早期概念阶段,美国陆军详细说明了其模块化电磁频谱欺骗套件或MEDS的构想,该作战套件旨在在电磁频谱的无形但高度动态变化的机动空间内迷惑敌人。

尽管事实上部队看不到它,但是电磁频谱是一个极其重要的空间,他们必须谨慎地穿越,就像一个单位穿过山谷一样。美国对手已经证明了能够仅根据其在电磁频谱中的签名来定位部队的能力,从而导致美国陆军的整个概念和装备发生变化,变成了较小的部队和指挥所。在电磁频谱范围内进行欺骗已经成为美军的高度优先事项。

美国陆军网络能力发展和整合中心主任史蒂芬·雷恩(Steven Rehn)在2020年11月17日由AFCEA主持的虚拟演讲中说,预计MEDS会通过压倒电磁频谱内的力量来既见敌人又减慢其决策周期。

根据雷恩的说法,MEDS的目的之一是从小单位水平一直复制到整个兵团指挥所,这可能会导致敌人大量浪费其时间和资源,弄清楚它是否是真实的实体。

除了复制友好信号之外,MEDS还可以在频谱内产生更多的“噪声”,以减慢敌人的决策速度。

他补充说,美国陆军可能会在未来几年内部署MEDS的某些能力。一些相关技术参与了原型设计和实验活动,包括2020年9月举行的Cyber Quest 20(对能力需求的原型评估)学习,并且计划在Cyber Quest 21中继续进行。

US Army working on new electromagnetic deception tool

The Army is prototyping a new deception tool its calling the Modular Electromagnetic Spectrum Deception Suite, or MEDS.
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Army is developing a new tool to gain an advantage in the cat and mouse game that is the electromagnetic spectrum mission.

Currently in the early concepts stage, the Army detailed its idea for the Modular Electromagnetic Spectrum Deception Suite, or MEDS, that will seek to confound the enemy within the invisible yet highly dynamic maneuver space of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Despite the fact forces cannot see it, the spectrum is an extremely important space they must cautiously move through just as a unit would in formation through a valley. U.S. adversaries have proven their ability to locate units based solely on their signature in the electromagnetic spectrum, leading to entire concept and materiel changes for the Army to smaller units and command posts. Deception within the spectrum has become a high priority for the U.S. military.

MEDS is expected to both see the enemy and slow its decision cycle by overwhelming its forces within the spectrum, Steven Rehn, director of the Army’s cyber capability development and integration directorate, said during a Nov. 17 virtual presentation hosted by AFCEA.

According to Rehn, one purpose of MEDS is to replicate friendly emissions within the spectrum from the small unit level all the way up to a full corps command post, which could cause the enemy to waste time and resources figuring out if it is a real entity.

In addition to replicating friendly signals, MEDS could also create more “noise” within the spectrum to potentially slow down the enemy.

He added that the Army might field some of MEDS’ capabilities within the next several years. Some associated technologies participated in prototyping and experimentation activities, including Cyber Quest 20 in September — a prototyping assessment of capability needs — and there are plans to continue that in Cyber Quest 21.
