Remote Unattended Ground System (RUGS)

Innovation for the Future is Now

The Remote Unattended Ground System (RUGS) will enable Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF), Multi-Domain Intelligence (MDI) and Military Information Support Operations (MISO). RUGS will support a variety of mission sets including decoy and deception, Electronic Warfare Support (ES), Electronic Attack (EA) and offensive cyber operations. The initial version will be a decoy and deception variant that when positioned can emit friendly signals to portray friendly locations.

  • Provides decoy/deception, Electronic Warfare Support (ES) and Electronic Attack (EA) and cyber operations
  • Enables Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF), Multi-Domain Intelligence (MDI) and Military Information Support Operations (MISO)
  • Multiple delivery methods including hand, high altitude vehicle, aerial ISR, artillery and robotics/autonomous vehicles
  • Features

    Features

    RUGS can depict that the friendly force is a larger formation than assessed by the enemy, thus providing the enemy with more targets to confirm or deny. RUGS can also be placed behind enemy lines to confuse the enemy of friendly intentions and make the enemy react with ISR or FIRES revealing their location and or intention. RUGS can also be placed on Named Areas of Interest (NAI) or Target Areas of Interest (TAI) to identify and locate the enemy. The Electronic Attack version can be placed in obstacle belts or Areas of Interest (AOI) to deny, disrupt and degrade enemy communication and coordination.
