Netline unveils its new C-Guard Micro – a compact, easy-to-carry, full-coverage Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Jamming Unit

October 11, 2021 Netline Communications Technologies Ltd. – a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality electronic warfare and spectrum dominance systems for defense forces and homeland security agencies – has introduced the new C-Guard Micro system. This compact, portable, full-coverage explosive ordnance silencer is designed for use by military and law enforcement personnel to assist bomb disposal teams during EOD and roadblock and counter-terrorism missions .

Based on the proven, reliable and advanced technology of the C-Guard family, the C-Guard Micro is extremely compact and easy to carry and offers an extremely high level of performance. It is tailored and adapted to the needs of bomb disposal units for a flexible, mobile, compact and effective system in terms of jamming power.

Weighing approximately 2.5 kg, the C-Guard Micro can be carried by either a single user or an EOD robot. When carried by an EOD robot, the system supports remote control to turn the system on/off and change the mission profile in real-time, allowing interoperability between the robot and the jammer.

Being compact, the system comes with a maximum of three antennas, offering extremely high performance while being able to handle and jam high frequencies – from UHF/VHF up to 6GHz – previously only possible in large, unwieldy multi-antenna systems.

With a small form factor and easy operation, the C-Guard Micro gives users flexibility in situations where access is time-critical but limited or only possible via stairs. The robust system is resistant to harsh environmental conditions.

C-Guard Micro is based on Netline’s Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform, which enables flexibility and adaptability to different operational scenarios and arenas, as well as new emerging threats, by reconfiguring the system according to existing threats in the arena.

The system runs on an external rechargeable battery that allows for about an hour of run time, or an external power source – such as a bomb disposal robot – giving the team the time they need to neutralize the threat while maintaining force protection.

“The C-Guard Micro jammer uses our new state-of-the-art EW generator,” says Yalon Bahat, CEO of Netline. “With more than twice the transmission bandwidth of the previous generation solution, it covers all threats with just three bands. Using our proven silencing technologies that have been in operation for over two decades, the C-Guard Micro silencer achieves an exceptional weight-power-performance combination. We have developed this unique system in accordance with the existing need of various bomb disposal units for an advanced technological solution, in a flexible and compact system. We are proud of this system and the contribution it makes by protecting department personnel and enabling forces in the field to quickly neutralize threats and accomplish their mission.
