Dismounted Electronic Warfare

Helping our warfighters own the electromagnetic spectrum is paramount to their safety and success on the battlefield.

With adversaries constantly challenging our dominance in cyberspace and the EMS spectrum, these operational environments become increasingly contested and complex. Having a reliable upper hand to assure and maintain access, use, fires, and maneuverability within the EMS and across all domains home and abroad—is more necessary than ever before.

Intelligence, Information, Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space systems (I2CEWS) help maintain overmatch against adversaries in these domains, while sharing the spectrum with allies. These I2CEWS systems help our warfighters rapidly detect, locate, monitor, and provide real-time analysis of the signal environment for improved situational awareness.

Take our low size, weight, and power hardware for example. With these advanced, small-profile sensors, warfighters can easily wear the systems in the field. And with enhanced performance features for rapidly detecting, locating, monitoring, and analyzing signals of interest, warfighters can be confident that the right information will flow to the commanders who need it, when they need it.

Maintaining overmatch against adversaries requires advanced signals, communications, and electronic intelligence. It requires offensive cyber and electronic warfare capabilities. It calls for reduced carry loads and improving SWaP, while not sacrificing performance. And, it creates a more lethal warfighter at the center of a modernized, advanced combat platform so they can always own the edge wherever and whenever they need.
