Thales, BAE Systems and CGI have announced a strategic teaming agreement to offer a collective solution for the second phase of the Royal Navy’s Maritime Electronic Warfare Programme (MEWP).

MEWP is a UK Ministry of Defence procurement programme that aims to provide upgraded electronic warfare capabilities to the Royal Navy.

For the second phase, called Maritime Electronic Warfare System Integrated Capability (MEWSIC) Increment 1, the companies will work together to deliver the critical components of electronic surveillance sensors, EW C2 and EW operational support.

Victor Chavez, CEO Thales in the UK, said: 'The criticality of providing a cutting edge EW defence capability to enable fleet wide protection has long been recognised. At Thales, we have worked in collaboration with the Ministry of Defence for over two decades to develop world leading technology.

'I am delighted to announce we are now bringing to the table the collective expertise of BAE Systems and CGI in this field. I believe this partnership will enable us to deliver the best possible EW capability to the Royal Navy.'
