Electronic warfare (EW) is any action involving the use of electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum) or directed energy to sense, protect, and communicate. Electronic warfare systems use focused energy, electromagnetic signals such as radio, infrared or radar to sense, protect, and communicate. Electronic Warfare systems can also be used to either disrupt or use these signals.
Mistral leverages its extensive experience in embedded software, hardware engineering and RADAR systems to offer custom rugged designs for Electronic Warfare solutions. Mistral’s expertise in design and development of Electronic Warfare solutions include system concept development, modeling and simulation, system design, implementation, testing and production support.
Our EW design team has extensive experience in implementing a wide array of electronic warfare systems and solutions like friend or foe identification (IFF), direction finding, electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic counter measures (ECM), Digital RF Memory sub-systems and wideband jammers. The ESM and ECM systems include gathering information from Electronic Warfare systems through Electronic Intelligence (ELINT), Communications Intelligence (COMINT) and other ESM receivers.
Mistral’s engineers can help specify, develop, integrate, test and support leading-edge Electronic Warfare systems by implementing signal processing algorithms on DSP or FPGA platforms with DO-178B compliant software implementation, testing and qualification, operational support, and system upgrades.
