Chemring Technology Solutions Launches Lightweight EW Manpack System
Chemring Technology Solutions (CTS) has expanded its award-winning RESOLVE Electronic Warfare (EW) range with a lightweight version of the RESOLVE manpack, EW system designed specifically for on-the-march missions.
Weighing just ten kilograms (22 pounds), The RESOLVE lightweight manpack system fits into a standard daysack, delivering dismounted soldiers more flexible EW capabilities to exploit multiple communications systems.

Despite a significant reduction in size and weight, RESOLVE's domain leading EW capabilities have not been compromised, as it delivers immediate threat warning, electronic overwatch and single sensor location for up to eight hours from a single battery. The simple interface provides instant access to key functions to deliver immediate support in a variety of operational environments, including close-quarter, long-range patrol or stand-off missions. The lightweight system can still be networked to other static or mobile systems.
Gavin O'Connell, Business Sector Manager at CTS, said: "Our original development of RESOLVE was a real step change, as no other EW system provides such a high level of direction-finding capability for dismounted missions. The RESOLVE lightweight manpack system builds on this by meeting our customers' increasing demand for smaller, portable solutions that reduce soldier burden and provide more effective support for on-the-march EW operations."
Optimised for 'on the march' capabilities, the RESOLVE lightweight manpack system offers an exciting alternative EW system to the standard RESOLVE manpack, which provides advanced signals analysis and enables multiple mission profiles.
The new RESOLVE lightweight manpack system will be launched at DSEI on the Chemring Stand
