Chemring shrinks Resolve EW manpack system
Chemring Technology Solutions (CTS) has launched a new lightweight version of its Resolve electronic warfare (EW) manpack system, designed to meet demand for more versatile EW solutions for on-the-march missions.
The new system weighs 10kg and fits into a standard daysack, and retains the EW capabilities of the larger, standard Resolve manpack system. It delivers immediate threat warning, electronic overwatch and single sensor location for up to eight hours from a single battery.
The lightweight system’s 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, 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.’
