• Two additions to Leonardo’s GUARDIAN family of Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) products will be revealed at the DSEI 2019 exhibition in London;
• The new GUARDIAN HFE provides a high-frequency extension for operators of existing C-IED products, such as Leonardo’s GUARDIAN H3 and other third-party systems, while the GUARDIAN HR delivers high-powered, targeted jamming across the threat spectrum and can be updated via software download, even during missions;
• GUARDIAN systems are in-service and combat-proven with Armed Forces around the world, with over 25,000 systems delivered.

The New GUARDIAN HR and GUARDIAN HFE have been developed in response to the emerging techniques and technologies which are starting to be employed by insurgent and terrorist groups. The two new variants are at a high technology readiness level and are available to order now for deliveries in 2020.

Leonardo’s GUARDIAN family of systems protect ground troops from the widespread threat of remotely-activated Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). These cheaply made and often low-tech remotely-controlled bombs represent a deadly threat to ground forces. In response, the GUARDIAN family uses advanced jamming technologies to block the signals used to detonate the devices. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the products have been battle-proven on operations in combat zones such as Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, saving many lives.

The two new versions of GUARDIAN have been created in response to enemy forces’ attempts to bypass current C-IED technology by modifying their methods of triggering Improvised Explosive Devices. The GUARDIAN HFE (High Frequency Extension) is an upgrade to the in-service Guardian H3, or to any other frequency limited C-IED equipment, which gives the system the ability to block the higher-frequency signals used by some mobile phone devices. The HFE system was successfully trialled by the Italian Army in June. Meanwhile, the Guardian HR is an all-new version of the system which brings two new features into the GUARDIAN toolbox. The first, responsive jamming, focuses power against a specific threat signal instead of using a barrage of lower power jamming energy. The other new feature is a software-configurable architecture, which adds an extra level of flexibility to the GUARDIAN system by allowing it to be updated/configured via software download in response to new threats, similar to how you might install an app on a mobile phone. Currently, both of the new systems are available as vehicle-mounted equipment and Leonardo is also developing a portable ‘manpack’ version of the GUARDIAN HR which is expected to be ready in 2020.
