Intelligence, Information, Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space (I2CEWS) Systems

In a dynamic world of rapidly changing technologies, capabilities, and threats throughout the electromagnetic environment and in cyberspace, it is critical that governments and military surpass the pace of threats. Leonardo DRS I2CEWS solutions enhance your disruptive & defensive capabilities for the future of warfare.

Electronic warfare is the process of using the electromagnetic spectrum that surrounds us to our advantage and limiting its availability to adversaries. At a high level, electronic warfare can be divided into three major areas: electronic attack (EA), electronic protection (EP), and electronic support (ES).

Leonardo DRS provides solutions for signals intelligence (SIGINT) and cyber operations. These capabilities defend our military’s networks and information systems while exploiting our adversaries’ communications through intelligence gathering, analysis, and dissemination – ensuring the right information flows to the commanders who need it, when they need it.

Our portfolio of electronic warfare equipment and software capabilities provide signal recognition, detection, identification, and geolocation in order to detect, exploit, and attack. Our hardware is aligned with the warfighter’s requirements for low size, weight, and power (SWaP) without sacrificing high performance. The low SWaP form factors allow for Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) capabilities where the equipment can integrate into cross-domain platforms.

Blackstone Intelligence Sensor Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)

Our I2CEWS hardware adopts the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) to ensure easy integration and interoperability with current military programs. Our commitment to open architecture standards is rooted in our design practices and results in low-risk solutions for our customers. We serve as committee chairman for multiple VITA standards and are leading participants of the MOSA, including SOSA, HOST, CMOSS, and OpenVPX efforts. This critical involvement ensures our products are interoperable across all military branches, program offices, and commercial entities.

BlackLab Intelligence SensorThe Next-Generation Intelligence, Information, Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space SensorBlackLab is Leonardo DRS’ next generation networked intelligence, information, cyber, electronic warfare and space sensor. The system provides mission-critical intelligence to the warfighter by rapidly detecting and locating a wide range of threat signals, monitoring signals of interest, and supporting real-time analysis of the signal environment.

Pitbull COMINT SensorThe Pitbull sensor provides modern signal communications intelligence (COMINT) and precision geolocation to aid in EA, EP, and ES operations. With dual agile transceiver sensors, Pitbull locates and monitors advanced signal emitters produced by adversaries. The sensor can be used as a single sensor or networked with other Pitbull sensors to accomplish larger mission objectives. 

With a compact, low SWaP form factor, Pitbull can be easily worn by soldiers or integrated into larger ground vehicle platforms to create a network of sensors. Similarly, it can take height in high altitude airborne missions without encroaching on the aircraft’s physical limitations.
