L-3 TRL, Drumgrange team for EW development
L-3 TRL Technology (L-3 TRL) has teamed with Drumgrange to jointly address demand for more capable integrated electronic warfare (IEW) and electronic warfare (EW) products. The companies announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 30 October.
The MoU aims to develop a modular, multi-role, multi-platform tactical IEW capability that equips the commander with an agile solution for rapid deployment across the joint battlespace, providing operators and their commanders with the means to quickly gather and disseminate information and intelligence essential for operations in the littoral and inshore domains.
Work will include enhancing the SMARTSCAN Joint Tactical IEW. SMARTSCAN IEW provides the tactical commander with a near-real-time combined EW picture, supporting the dynamic tasking, management and control of assigned tactical assets in order to exploit the EM spectrum for tactical advantage.
Richard Flitton, vice president of L-3 TRL’s Electronic Warfare division, said: ‘We are very excited about our collaboration with Drumgrange, which will provide both companies with additional opportunities to serve the marketplace. This strategic partnership also paves the way for L-3 TRL to now support littoral, amphibious and riverine EW requirements.’
