Cobham Antenna Systems is a leader in military land systems for Counter Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) capability and through the supply of state-of-the-art integrated tactical communications systems.
Cobham continues to work in close partnership with the UK
Government to share its world leading know-how and equipment and
today more than 150,000 communication systems have been supplied to
our partners and allies. Together with Vallon GmbH, the
manufacturer of Minehound, over 9,500 Counter IED detectors have
been supplied worldwide.
The legacy of asymmetric warfare continues to be a major issue
for many Governments around the globe. IEDs continue to kill
and maim indiscriminately, restricting freedom of manoeuvre of
military, police, peacekeepers and civilians alike. Cobham
has developed a range of handheld and vehicle mounted sensor
technologies to combat these threats. Minehound is the market
leading dual sensor detector, developed and manufactured in
partnership with Vallon GmbH, and it continues to play a central
role in Counter IED operations worldwide.
Our reliable partner Vallon GmbH is about to bring this DTMD
detector under the "Make in India" programme to India to support
the Security Forces and Armed Forces clear mined areas and disrupt
terrorist activities through the detection of buried threats.
Effective communications remains of paramount importance at the
tactical edge and Cobham's digital Vehicle Intercom Systems (VIS),
advanced mast systems, as well as its wide range of high
performance UHF, VHF, resilient GPS and microwave antennas are in
use in for the most demanding of military applications.
Cobham's revolutionary Integrated Communications Environment (ICE)
technology provides a means to not only integrate multi-radio
communications systems on to land vehicle platforms, but also to
allow tactical terrestrial and satellite communications systems to
co-exist with electronic counter measures (ECM) equipment.
This offers military and police an unparalleled force protection
capability, a key enabler to ensuring that freedom of manoeuvre is
maintained, even in an environment where asymmetric threats are in
