    I have a 2005 dodge truck with a 4.7 that has started running very rich to the point of choking out and it has a random cylinder misfire. The cruse was working intermittently and the dash lights would randomly go on and off. The mechanic changed a coil and cam sensor that did nothing but clean up a couple codes and suggested I change the ECM. My question is: can I use a junkyard unit that I can change myself or does the new computer need to be reprogrammed for my vehicle by the dealer (I have heard both)
  • Israel’s Secret Iran Attack Plan: Electronic Warfare

    For much of the last decade, as Iran methodically built its nuclear program, Israel has been assembling a multibillion-dollar array of high-tech weapons that would allow it to jam, blind, and deafen Tehran's defenses in the case of a pre-emptive aerial strike. A U.S. intelligence assessment this summer, described to The Daily Beast by current and former U.S. intelligence officials, concluded that any Israeli attack on hardened nuclear sites in Iran would go far beyond airstrikes from F-15 and F-16 fighter planes and likely include electronic warfare against Iran’s electric grid, Internet, cellphone network, and emergency frequencies for firemen and...

    For the last four months, a detachment of five new American EA-18G electronic warfare aircraft have been operating in Iraq. Exactly what they are doing there is classified. The EA-18Gs are replacing the aging EA-6Bs that now provide electronic protection against enemy radars and missiles for navy and air force aircraft. The air force retired their EF-111 electronic warfare aircraft in 1994, on the assurance that the navy would get the EA-18G into service before the EA-6Bs died of old age. The older 27 ton EA-6B carries a crew of four, while the highly automated 29 ton EA-18G has only...

    Attack, not defense, will reshape electronic warfare. A magazine filled with electron pulses, information scrambling data streams and invasive algorithms may arm the Next-Generation Jammer (NGJ). By 2018, variants of the U.S. Navy’s NGJ likely will be carried by a half-dozen manned and unmanned aircraft—perhaps more. The service’s EP-X signals and communications intelligence aircraft—still without a final design or completed requirements—will be replacing the long-serving EP-3E. “EP-X is going to be the eyes and ears that find the signals” that NGJ will jam and manipulate, says Christopher Carlson, director of U.S. business development for ITT’s integrated EW systems. “Precisely identifying...

    BESMAYA COMBAT TRAINING CENTER, Iraq, March 2, 2009 – Iraqi army field engineer regiments are training here with an electronic countermeasure system designed to prevent remote triggering of roadside bombs. Produced by U.S. defense contractor Lockheed Martin, the Symphony improvised explosive device jammer is a vehicle-mounted, programmable, radio-frequency system that interferes with radio signals. Officials here worked with Lockheed Martin to install Symphony systems in 22 Iraqi up-armored Humvees and 11 Badger light armored vehicles. The vehicles then were staged for issue to Iraqi divisional engineering units. Designated Iraq soldiers receive vehicle orientation and Symphony operator’s training here, then return...

    The lid of secrecy covering the Sept. 6 Israeli air strike into Syria remains tight but one new theory emerging amid the speculation is that the Israeli conducted an electronic warfare exercise in preparation for future strikes or an attack on Iran. Authoritative reports from the Middle East stated that the Israel operation included extensive electronic warfare jamming by aircraft. The Israeli were testing the capabilities of Russian-made air defenses, including both radar and missiles located near Damascus and south of Homs near the Lebanese northern border. The raid was unprecedented in the blanket of jamming and electronic disruption that...

    After Israeli missile strike on Syria confirmed by both sides, the question remains – how did Israel's non-stealth jets infiltrate Syrian airspace undetected? US aerospace experts tell Aviation Week magazine that Israel used new US-developed technology that lets users invade and manipulate enemy communication networks Ynet Published: 10.05.07, 01:15 / Israel News After Syrian President Bashar Assad admitted that Israeli planes carried out a missile strike in Syria and after the media blackout on the incident was lifted in Israel, many unanswered questions still remain regarding how IAF jets managed to infiltrate Syrian security. An article published this week on...

    Other, more contemporary Senior programs named by Arkin reveal and track the Air Force's growing interest in and development of the new field of computer network warfare and electronic attack, which include Senior Keystone (related to classified information warfare) and Senior Suter. However, the Air Force's theme remains the same--penetrating the enemy's defenses. Senior Suter is a Big Safari-managed special access program. Big Safari itself is a shadowy Air Force unit that has developed small numbers of specialized reconnaissance systems, including drones, in what are often classified programs. The Suter technology was developed during the last several years by BAE...

    On July 14th the IDF's best anti-air defense vessel was mission killed by a strike from shore off the Beruit, Lebannon coast. It appears that the vessel was hit by a guided missile, launched either by Iranian trained Hezbollah, or by Iranian Guards themselves operating out of Lebannon. Land-launched Chinese anti-shipping missile, C-802 The missile was apparently a Chinese-made C-802 which is a sub sonic surface to surface anti-shipping missile. The Iranians have purchased a lot of these from China, and is working with N. Korea to improve the design. The missile is capable of a sea-skimming approach, and reportedly...

    Marines award contract for IED jammers WASHINGTON, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The Marine Corps has awarded a $289 million contract to General Dynamics for a system to foil roadside bombs and other improvised explosive devices. Known by the acronym IED, such bombs have vexed U.S. troops in Iraq and have accounted for the lion's share of U.S. casualties. The contract awarded by the Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico calls for the design production and installation of General Dynamic's Remote Controlled Explosive Improvised Device (RCEID) Electronic Counter Measure systems, a technology that will basically jam the signals used to trigger...

    08/26/02 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFPN) -- Experts from the large aircraft infrared countermeasures program here got the green light Aug. 22 to begin low-rate initial production of the system. They hope to deliver the first laser-protected transport to Air Mobility Command in early 2004. The production decision, made after extensive laser and live-fire tests conducted earlier this year, gives Aeronautical Systems Center officials permission to buy the first four LAIRCM production ship sets, with an additional nine systems scheduled for purchase in 2003. AMC officials have asked the special program office experts to equip enough transports to...
