​SwRI to repair MUTES and Mini-MUTES assemblies

2nd September 2020 - 18:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Air Force Sustainment Center has selected Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) to repair circuit cards and circuit card assemblies for the Multiple Threat Emitter System (MUTES) and Mini-MUTES.

MUTES units are used to train military pilots to identify and effectively counter enemy missile or artillery threats. The system is a threat simulator typically comprising 20 transmitters, 19 of which are used to simulate more than 70 different electronic threat systems. 

Mini-MUTES, which are usually installed in remote locations, are used to create a multiple threat signal environment characteristic of integrated air defence systems.

San Antonio, Texas-based SwRI will complete work on the $10.75 million contract by the end of August 2025.
