airborne self-protection jammer

An ECM (electronic countermeasure) system that jams the signal of hostile radar and thus provides protection to the mother aircraft only. Any protection to other aircraft in the formation is incidental. The jammer first detects the radiation of enemy emitters and compares it with its integral threat library. If the transmission either is confirmed to be hostile or is an unknown threat, the jammer radiates and jams the enemy receiver(s) and thus attempts to protect the aircraft.
