Part of the Army’s initiative to rapidly field signals intelligence capabilities that address the challenge of intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance (ISR) recently rolled off the production line in Scottsdale.

A team led by General Dynamics C4 Systems delivered the first Prophet Enhanced tactical signals intelligence system before a group of military customers including Brig. Gen. Thomas Cole, program executive officer for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors for the US Army.

The Prophet Enhanced system will enable tactical commanders to better “see,” “hear” and “respond” to ISR information throughout the networked battlespace. The first system, integrated into a Panther rapid-deployment command-and-control vehicle will next undergo system testing and evaluation in Scottsdale. The Army awarded the Prophet Enhanced contract to a team led by General Dynamics in February 2009.

“Once fielded, this system will have a direct and immediate impact on protecting warfighters throughout the battlespace,” said Mark Showah, director of Integrated Systems for General Dynamics C4 Systems.
