Our electronic warfare systems detect and defeat advanced radio frequency threats.
Our electronic warfare systems equip tactical fighters, global strike and unmanned vehicles to detect, identify, locate, deny, and defeat advanced radio frequency threat systems. We develop innovative technologies that deliver unmatched situational awareness, broadband electronic attack, passive targeting, full-spectrum countermeasures, and data link communications with low probability of detection and low probability of intercept.
