Are there any private civilian aviation uses for Electronic Counter Measures, or is ECM capability something that only a military needs?
The reason I'm asking is because of the photo below of a private Gates Lear-24 bizjet that's carrying an ECM pod through the skies over Sweden.
The only ECM uses I'm aware of involve the jamming of air & ground radar, and communications, etc, by military aircraft...which Sweden has many of. So what would this Learjet be up to?

Here's some aircraft that I normally think of that use ECM.
