Thor’s Hammer exercise [fr]
The French Armed Forces participated in Thor’s Hammer exercise in October. This training aims to test and evaluate jammers against improvised explosive devices with remote controlled system, one of the major threat in current land operations.
12 NATO countries have undertaken trials during several weeks in the North of Adelaide. These tests provided a lot of lessons learned and knowledge sharing. It will enable allied vehicles, equipped with different type of jammers, to counter the enemy devices without jamming themselves, which has always been tricky. The French Armed Forces participated with a team of experts from the Army and from the DGA (Delegation Generale de l’Armement).
