Sometimes it is just not possible to fit all of the information from an interview into one article. That’s what blogs are for.
The Army program executive officer-intelligence, electronic warfare and sensors (PEO-IEW&S) office also is providing the Wolfhound man-portable signals intelligence system to the Afghan National Army (ANA). The 201st ANA Corps received the system and was trained on its use earlier this year at Forward Operating Base Gamberi. The Wolfhound will allow ANA soldiers to hear enemy radio communication and, as an improvement to the current system, it will tell Afghan troops the enemy’s location.
