Raytheon to continue EWPMT development
Raytheon will continue to develop the US Army’s Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT) under a 24 month contract announced on 3 October.
EWPMT is a tool that plans, manages and controls sensors and systems in the electromagnetic spectrum, providing critical information about what is happening in a crowded signal environment.
Raytheon will work on Capability Drop 4 (CD4), which represents the final stage of a fully operating capability - Increment 1. This will include continuing to develop software and the user interface for a more connected, mobile system.
Raytheon delivered CD1 and CD2, and is currently working on CD3, which addresses using the tool in a tactical environment against threats. CD3 also includes all of the functionality of Raytheon's Raven Claw, a mobile version of EWPMT that helps operators control signals in the field without requiring a host server or reliable connection to external data.
