When you spot a convoy led by the Chief Minister or a VVIP, there’s usually a distinct vehicle that stands out among the rest. It often navigates through the middle of the convoy, yet many overlook its purpose. If you’re curious about this vehicle, let’s dive into its details.

So, what is this vehicle?

It’s an RCIED jammer, a specialized tool crafted to shield convoys or individual vehicles from explosive devices triggered by remote control. This system effectively disrupts frequencies ranging from 25 to 6000 MHz, delivering up to 1300 watts of power, ensuring a protective radius around the vehicle.

The SCL-VJ harnesses Direct Digital Synthesis technology, effectively neutralizing the threat posed by remote-controlled improvised explosive devices. Its design offers flexibility, enabling swift deployment on both mobile and fixed platforms. Concerning the health risks associated with radiation exposure, the vehicle incorporates an RF protection shield, safeguarding the driver and passengers.

This advanced system breaks down the entire frequency range into 12 separate modules, covering a wide spectrum from military and commercial bands to civil bands across VHF/UHF bands, GSM/CDMA, UMTS, and Wi-Fi frequency bands. These modules possess the capability to disrupt various communication systems like radio sets, GSM 2G/3G cell phones, GPS receivers, and satellite phones, ensuring comprehensive protection.
