NEW YORK CITY, 25 October 2006. L-3 Communications' TRL Technology (L-3 TRL Technology) subsidiary, a unit of its Integrated Systems Group, has launched its next-generation Broad Shield force protection solution that counters improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

A programmable IED jammer and countermeasures system, the Broad Shield Tactical Manpack (TMP) builds on L-3 TRL Technology's combat-proven Broad Shield force-protection units. Approximately 50 percent lighter and smaller than its predecessor, the Broad Shield TMP retains the original system's frequency range, performance, mission duration, and transmit capabilities, as well as sports an increased ability to address simultaneous threats.

L-3 TRL Technology created this latest generation solution based on customer feedback and operational experience, as well as extensive testing of the advanced Broad Shield manpack equipment against a broad range of threats.

The Broad Shield TMP also provides wideband continuous frequency coverage without any loss of systems flexibility or ease of programming. Other key enhancements include the incorporation of additional direct digital synthesis signal generators to generate multiple simultaneous jamming signals, a zeroize button, and provision for a plug-in external remote control box.
