General Dynamics, Curtiss-Wright partner for EW
General Dynamics Mission Systems has collaborated with Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions to deliver open architecture AI-based commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for signals intelligence (SIGINT) and EW situational awareness applications.
Under the partnership, General Dynamics Mission Systems’ SignalEye threat detection software will be combined with Curtiss-Wright’s Intel Xeon D processor-based CHAMP-XD1 module to provide system designers with a deployable COTS solution for RF spectrum situational awareness that automatically classifies signals through the use of machine learning.
The SignalEye solution provides spectrum situational awareness, giving tactical warfighters and security personnel a timely, accurate view of the threat in the RF spectrum.
The 3U OpenVPX CHAMP-XD1 is a rugged digital signal processor engine module. This 3U VPX processor card is available in a range of ruggedised configurations to deliver optimal performance in the harshest deployed environments, including air-cooled and conduction cooled variants.
Bill Ross, a VP of General Dynamics Mission Systems, said: ‘The evolving EW and SIGINT threat confronting warfighters today requires an integrated solution. By combining our SignalEye machine learning software with Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-XD1 processor, we can provide warfighters with a greater understanding of the RF threats on the battlefield.’
