The same denial effect is achieved by spot jamming without the protagonist having to develop physical methods of interfering with space-related infrastructure.
Thales Land & Joint Systems Division entered the jamming market following the evolution towards more sophisticated systems such as spot jammers; the TRC-274 software-defined jammer has evolved into the TRC-274 FPJ (Force Protection Jammer) with built-in ESM allowing to analyse the threat in order to carry out focused jamming, although a selection between barrage jamming and spot jamming can be made by the user.
They gave a jamming bandwidth of only about 5 MHz, but they could be electrically tuned very rapidly and so were ideal for spot jamming. At that time, the power output of the VTM was only a few watts, so in the MSJ, we used them to drive a wideband traveling-wave-tube amplifier.
