The U.S. Navy recently approved ‘Symphony Block 40’, Lockheed Martin’s counter-improvised explosive device system to support US and coalition forces.

Symphony Block 40 is an open architecture system developed with the latest technologies to address new and emerging threats. This system simultaneously jams select or multiple electronic signals used to trigger a radio-controlled (RC) IED, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

The jammer is a small, vehicle-mounted system with an open architecture design that provides continuous coverage across the entire threat spectrum, as well as includes updated capabilities for maximum effectiveness, security, and response.

The United States and its allies rely on Symphony to protect warfighters in an unpredictable future.  The Symphony product line is the only counter-IED systems of its kind approved by the U.S. government for foreign military sale to allied, coalition and partner nations.

Work on the Symphony line of products is done in Clearwater, Florida, Manassas, Virginia, and Syracuse, New York, under an indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Navy.
