Electronic Warfare Techniques Applied to Human Perception

Describe your idea

Jammers, spoofers, decoys, DRFM, and all the counter measures are part of electronic warfare for radars, ships, missiles, and planes. How might the application of these techniques be applied to human perception and ground combat? Perfect camouflage might be hard. Let’s use a swarm of small drones to overload visual and acoustic perception. Bright lights, scintillation, null spots can all be used. Broadcast interference can create shadows and decoys. Deceptive patterns or sensory overload would be would be transmitted toward detected sensors. Barrage jamming would be used for background cover.

It would be even easier to jam and deceive acoustic sensors. We don’t want our Soldiers to be affect by our sensory warfare, so they will need visual and auditory filters that would actually enhance their senses. These devices could make use a prior knowledge of the broadcasts to filter them perfectly. They could also attempt to counter enemy sensory warfare.

What makes this idea new or different?

Imagine being in a house with a psychedelic light show with rock music blaring and shadows keep popping up and disappearing, their might be gun fire going on but it is hard to tell. At the same time, a Soldier with half a dozen small drones around him sees the situation perfectly clearly, and can hear every step and every breath of his target.

Instead of hiding with camouflage, we would try of overwhelm the senses of people and sensors

What will be the implications of this idea?

Until near peer competitors catch up, it will provide an advantage in close quarters combat and some degree of advantage at greater ranges. It will be most effective against asymmetric threats who cannot match the advanced capabilities of capital intensive Armies.

It is not actually that hard to induce seizures, the "electrical storms" of the brain. This is not really that far-fetched at all. And for that reason quite frightening!
