U.S. Army taps Lockheed-Martin to develop cyber/electronic warfare podded system
ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, Md., - Lockheed Martin has been awarded an $18 million contract to design, develop and test a cyber/electronic warfare podded system for the “Air Large” component of the U.S. Army’s Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) family of systems program.
Lockheed Martin created an open architecture system called Silent CROW that can be configured for a variety of airborne and ground platforms, such as a wing-mounted pod for Group 4 unmanned aerial systems. Silent CROW would enable U.S. soldiers to disrupt, deny, degrade, deceive and destroy adversaries’ electronic systems through electronic support, electronic attack and cyber techniques.
“Lockheed Martin’s deep roots in cyberspace allow us to anticipate future threats while actively solving today’s most complex cyber problems,” said Deon Viergutz, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Spectrum Convergence. “We’re prioritizing the Army’s critical needs by partnering with them and investing in new technologies that are scalable and affordable.”
Lockheed Martin has decades of cyber and integrated electronic warfare experience, providing real-time situational awareness and countermeasure technologies to protect land, sea and air assets from attacks.
