Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is testing an electronic warfare pod in the company's advanced anechoic chamber. The pod is designed to fit a variety of platforms, and is a self-contained electronic warfare package, encompassing an entire suite of capabilities in one unit.
Electronic warfare is the art and science of controlling the electromagnetic spectrum—from jamming enemy communications or radar to protecting friendly forces from the ability of others to jam their signals.
“Our electronic warfare solution offers the capability to understand the electromagnetic battlespace through passive detection capabilities for advanced threats, advanced countermeasures, and a framework to easily integrate future upgrades,” said Brigitte Aungier, Lockheed Martin Electronic Warfare business development. “We offer proven capabilities that outpace the threat to the electromagnetic spectrum in a package that will allow us to continue to upgrade it in order to beat future threats.”
Lockheed Martin continues to develop and advance open architecture, wideband electronic warfare systems with a continual focus on low-cost, modular infrastructure that can be tailored to any mission.
