Soldiers’ ability to communicate with each other effectively on the battlefield could be enhanced, under a research project now underway. Working jointly with a company called Syncopated Engineering, the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) and the Army Research Laboratory believe they have promising solution.

The process entails use of Syncopated Engineering’s radio-frequency (RF) footprint. Its Mockingbird RF system can deceive and confuse enemies by emulating radio personalities and manipulating the electromagnetic spectrum.


While other means of doing so exist, this process is considered more cost effective and protective of personnel and valuable equipment. While still in the developmental stage, the system’s prototypes are deemed sufficiently robust to undergo testing in real time and in the field.
