Military HF gaining ground in Europe

According to an analysis by authoritative defence media outlet, Jane’s, military HF systems are experiencing a resurgence thanks to concerns about the denial or degrading of other communications modes in times of conflict.

Jane’s reports that numerous NATO countries are looking to HF help them counter Russian electronic and cyber capabilities.

The analysis cites as an example a recent French military call for communications capabilities that would enable long-range connectivity across Africa.

France’s Future Land HF Radio program is testing Thales’s HFXL waveform, which is designed to increase resiliency in tactical communications networks across the battlespace.
