Extreme Electronic Warfare
EWX ECS vision
In the 2000s, ECS embarked on an Xtreme EW campaign that focused on innovative, cutting-edge EW capabilities and a sense of belonging that existed among our employees, airframers, customers, pilots, and suppliers. We were developing state-of-the-art EW solutions that provided a competitive edge to our customers, and making a difference in the world – it meant something to be part of our Xtreme EW community.
Fast forward to 2021. The warfare landscape has evolved, and so has our EW strategy. Our strategy sets the foundation for developing the next generation of EW systems today that are relevant into 2040 and beyond.  Our Xtreme EW community has evolved into Extreme EW 2.0 – known by its shorthand EWX – that focuses on building full-spectrum EW suites, integrating feedback from our partners, and accounting for total cost of ownership and diminishing manufacturing sources.
EWX builds on our history of success in EW and focuses on strengthening our EW community bonds at every level, and we want you to join us on the journey. The three pillars of this strategy are to:
