SRC receives CEAR order
SRC will supply Common Electronic Attack Receiver (CEAR) systems to BAE Systems under a $5.2 million contract announced on 18 June.
The company will build and deliver 40 CEAR systems under the contract.
CEAR performs real-time analysis of countermeasures for true-to-life training against RF threats. The system is a key component in both the Unmanned Threat Emitter and Joint Threat Emitter systems, allowing users of military aircraft to test their ability to detect and defeat real-world threats.
The CEAR system can detect and evaluate the effectiveness of countermeasures including range and velocity deception, amplitude modulation, chaff and noise. It also supports reactive threat simulation, creating a more realistic training environment to better prepare soldiers for surface-to-air missile attacks.
