Ultra Electronics was a key member of the Defence Program Redwing that produced a low-cost, lightweight Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) jammer that could be used and in austere operating environments such as Afghanistan. Two variants were produced – the GREENGUM personal unit and the GREYGUM vehicle-mounted device. DSTG scientists and engineers delivered an initial concept demonstrator and Ultra Australia was the Prime for manufacture and delivery of over 40,000 units to Afghanistan to support coalition activities. Ultra Australia also produces other man-portable and vehicle mounted C-IED devices in service with the US Army and Royal Australian Army. To test and develop such devices Ultra Australia delivered and supports a test instrumentation range for Commonwealth use.
