原文:

Army air and missile defense soldiers simultaneously shot down two simulated cruise missile targets while under EW attack, thanks to a new radar-linking system.

The soldiers, from 3rd Battalion, 43rd Air Defense Artillery Regiment, are participating in a limited user test of the Army Integrated Battle Command System, or IBCS, at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The test successfully linked two Patriot radars and two Sentinel radars to three Patriot launchers spread out across the desert.

The radars detected two MQM-178 cruise missile drone targets flying challenging maneuvers at low altitude and relayed target information, triggering a battery to fire two Patriot PAC 3 cost-reduction initiative (CRI)interceptor missiles to simultaneously destroy both threats.

中譯:

美國陸軍防空暨飛彈防禦官兵在遭電戰攻擊的狀況下,藉助新式雷達鏈結系統,同時擊落2枚模擬巡弋飛彈目標。

這群來自第43防空砲兵團第3營的官兵,刻正於新墨西哥州白沙飛彈靶場,進行陸軍整合作戰指揮系統的有限度用戶測試。此次測試成功地將2具愛國者雷達及2具哨兵雷達,鏈結到散布於沙漠區的3座愛國者飛彈發射器。

該等雷達偵測到2枚採高難度低空飛行動作的MQM-178巡弋飛彈無人靶機,並傳輸目標資訊,促使砲兵連發射2枚愛國者3型成本削減計畫攔截飛彈,同時摧毀這2枚巡弋飛彈的威脅。

※EW:

Electronic warfare.

例句:

The lack of understanding of the implications of EW can have significant mission impact–even in the simplest possible scenario.

對電戰的內涵欠缺了解,會對任務產生重大影響,即便是在最單純不過的合理兵推情境下。
