The Dutch army is improving its signals intelligence with two newly equipped Fuchs (Fox) electronic warfare (EW) vehicles and three mobile analysis containers delivered yesterday. The new kit will be used to intercept radio communications.

Fuchs crew members will use the vehicles' sensor stations with 19-meter-high antenna masts to locate electromagnetic signals. They will also be able to quickly decode intercepted messages and send them to the containers for analysis by signals specialists before being sent to higher command levels.

The new equipment was delivered to the Dutch Joint Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance Command's 102 EW Company, whose mission is to intercept, locate, analyze and jam enemy communications as well as secure friendly communications.
