Adaptable radio networking aims technology aims to help U.S. forces defeat electronic warfare (EW) attacks

Feb. 5, 2021
DyNAMO experiments are planned to evaluate the performance of communications among disparate networks during contested operating conditions.

ARLINGTON, Va. – Communications during an electronic warfare (EW) attack can be difficult, if not impossible -- especially in the presence of high-power jammers. Jack Browne at Microwaves & RF reports. Continue reading original article

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

5 Feb. 2020 -- As part of a solution, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) demonstrated the effectiveness of its Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization (DyNAMO) program the receive and transmit data across nominally incompatible radio communications networks.

The tactical networking program is aiming to provide connectivity even between different data types during electronic-warfare (EW) attacks.

The DyNAMO program was instituted to enable automated adaptation of different tactical radio networks whether on the ground, at sea, or in the air. DyNAMO engineers recently simulated the performance of the program in bridging multiple radio networks under contested operating conditions.
