DEWC Systems takes MOESS sensor development to next stage

21st June 2021 - 12:45 GMT | by Tim Fish in Auckland


DEWC Systems is focused upon developing the EW payloads and communications architectures that support MOESS operation as well as some future sensor systems (DEWC Systems)

The MOESS programme intends to deploy a sovereign Australian tactical electromagnetic sensor capability, installed on a constellation of CubeSats. DEWC is developing a sensor that can conduct radar electronic support in defence-relevant radio frequency bands used by assets such as ships and aircraft.

The Miniaturised Orbital Electronic Warfare Sensor System (MOESS) project for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) is entering the third phase of development.

Ian Spencer, CEO of DEWC Systems, which is building the MOESS radar electronic support sensor, told Shephard that the company had completed the second phase of development that included the production of a new Radio Frequency sensor for the SP1 experimental launch system.

Under the MOESS programme, a constellation of low earth orbit (LEO) CubeSats fitted with the RF sensor and using AI will be able to detect, measure and classify radio signal emitters and radar from space
