MASS has had its service support contract extended with the NATO Joint Electronic Warfare Core Staff (JEWCS) based at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton, the company announced on 9 January.

MASS has provided support to JEWCS since 2014 and will now continue that support to the end of 2018, with options for a further two years. The total value of the contract is worth approximately £1 million per year.

The support includes electronic, software and mechanical engineering as well as electronic warfare (EW) operations analysis. MASS technicians are responsible for the depth maintenance of the NATO JEWCS fleet of legacy EW training assets in the land, maritime and air domains.

The operations analyst is responsible for generating the exercise libraries required to programme the EW training assets in support of 25-30 NATO/national EW exercises a year.

MASS’ support of JEWCS has contributed to fielding an app-based functionality for GPS jamming, digital high frequency, ultra-high frequency, very high frequency communications, audio jamming and dynamic communications jamming.

NATO JEWCS formally left the NATO Command Structure in October 2013 and is now a stand-alone MoU entity of 12-member nations, where the UK is the host and Greece is the lead nation. The facility provides a range of EW services to the three NATO Strategic Commands and is a unique capability within NATO.
