RAMSTEIN, Germany - From July 17 to 21, Exercise Ramstein Guard offers an opportunity to Allied forces in Lithuania to conduct Electronic Warfare (EW) drills exercise under the command and control of NATO’s Combined Air Operations Centre in Uedem (Germany).
We are hugely benefiting from training with our Allies and applying common tactics, techniques and procedures.
Exercise Ramstein Guard is a NATO-sponsored electronic warfare exercise series coordinated by Supreme Allied Command Europe and included in the NATO Electronic Warfare Force Integration Programme (NEWFIP). The Exercise series is designed to improve the effectiveness and capability of the NATO Integrated Air and Missile Defence System (NATINAMDS) units and train Allied forces to operate effectively in a hostile EW environment.
The July iteration involves the use of a ground-based jamming station and an electronic jamming aircraft to train forces to operate in an adverse EW environment whilst providing timely briefings and reports using surveillance radars. Ramstein Guard exposes Allies to a wide variety of EW tactics in a controlled environment and provides integrated and coordinated training to operate in hostile electromagnetic environments.
