US Air Force Seeks Info on Electronic Warfare Receiver Systems

electronics motherboard microchip_EBizThe U.S. Air Force is seeking industry input for the service’s plan to develop electronic warfare receiver systems, UPI reported Tuesday.

Richard Tomkins writes the Air Force Research Laboratory and Air Force Life Cycle Management Center will generate a near to midterm technological roadmap based on feedback to the request for information.

The Air Force intends for the planned receiver technology to address existing and future radar threats such as multimode waveforms, electronically scanning array, wide radio frequency and variable pulse widths with coded modulations, according to the report.

UPI reports the service seeks to gather ideas on future EW receiver concepts and assess the availability of systems to counter these threats.

The Air Force wants companies to submit information on both hardware and software areas, including cost and risk assessment details, Tomkins reports.
