Skyshield is an advanced airborne support jammer system developed by Rafael in Israel.

The Skyshield support Jammer POD for fighter aircraft provides an all-inclusive multi-purpose support jamming system. Sky Shield engages enemy radars in hostile environments providing comprehensive countermeasures against enemy threats. The system creates a safe corridor for multiple attacking aircraft, increasing aircraft survivability in time and attack options. The Skyshield POD covers Radars spectrum range from D band to KU Band and includes a digital interferometer system for signal detection, a DRFM based technique generator and a modular solid-state steering array transmitters (ESAT) for Jamming. The system was purchased by the Brazilian Air force in 2006 for its AMX type fighter aircraft and will be integrated by the Brazilian aerospace Embraer company.
