Why turn to BAE Systems for Storm EW? 

BAE Systems provides full-spectrum electronic warfare technologies that take on and conquer current and future threats, and our Storm EW suite makes it easy to add over-the-horizon EW capabilities at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated EW system.

Other top reasons include:


BAE Systems is the global leader in next-generation EW systems.

  • We are the sole provider of EW systems for 5th generation and other next-generation military aircraft, including the F-15EX program using our Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS), and the F-35 program’s Block 4 upgrade.
  • 95% of U.S. military rotary-wing aircraft (helicopters) depend on our EW systems.
  • Integrated on 120+ airborne systems.
  • We provide our EW systems to more than 65 different countries worldwide.

We have 60+ years of experience developing electronic warfare systems for military, intelligence, and head-of-state aircraft.

  • The Electronic Combat Solutions (ECS) team at BAE Systems is unsurpassed worldwide at exploiting the full electromagnetic spectrum to protect combat aircraft, increase lethality and survivability, and support the mission.
  • For decades, we partnered with other aerospace and defense sector leaders, including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, L3Harris, and others, to advance electronic warfare, communications, Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), and other technologies that leverage the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) more effectively to protect U.S. warfighters and our allies.

At every stage of the EW life cycle, BAE Systems delivers.

  • Development. Our research and development teams create full-spectrum Extreme EW 2.0 (EWX) suites proven to outperform competitors, with next-generation defensive and offensive EW capabilities, all designed for rapid technology upgrades that stay ahead of emerging threats.
  • Production. Customers can count on a rapid fielding advantage from the Storm EW suite thanks to a hot production capability at our state-of-the-art electronic warfare integrated manufacturing center and three microwave module factories.
  • Sustainment. BAE Systems’ performance-based logistics (PBL) approach to sustainment of EW systems gives our customers a lower total life-cycle cost than other systems offer, which can also extend the effective useful lifespan of our systems.

Our expertise leads the world in EW solutions across every domain.

  • The Storm EW suite is outfitted for aircraft, but ready to detect, identify, track, and attack modern day threats from all domains – air, land, sea, space, and cyber. They can do that because BAE Systems dominates the electromagnetic spectrum with electro-optical (EO), infrared (IR), radio frequency (RF) and cyber effects products, systems, and expertise like no one else worldwide.

Accelerating the future of EW

Winning the battlespace depends on controlling the skies, and the future of air power depends on unrelenting electromagnetic dominance. That’s why BAE Systems proactively transformed our business model to develop technologies that outpace threats and own the electromagnetic spectrum and the battlespace – whenever and wherever necessary. We recently invested more than $150 million in our production facilities, including three state-of the-art microwave manufacturing factories, and are committed to delivering future-focused performance and unequaled quality to our customers, on time and on budget. We have the production capacity in place right now, with available growth to meet increasing demand. BAE Systems’ experience, manufacturing capabilities, and global support network all substantially accelerate the fielding of our systems as they drive down total Life-cycle costs for our customers, resulting in the most compelling EW portfolio investment option available.
