Electronic Warfare is the use of radio signals to intercept, locate, identify, detect, track, jam, disrupt, protect and analyze an object of interest. Electronic Warfare systems enable warfare within the Electro-magnetic spectrum (EMS). Electronic warfare solutions are widely used in gaining battlefield intelligence or combat power worldwide.
Electronic Warfare (EW) refers to any action involving the use of electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum) or directed energy to sense, detect, locate, track and communicate. Electronic Warfare solutions use focused energy, electromagnetic signals such as radio, infrared or radar to sense, track, or communicate. Electronic warfare systems must have a way to collect and make sense of the signals in its environment. Electronic Warfare can also be used to either disrupt or use these signals. Electronic warfare systems have three main capabilities: sensing the environment (sense and collect), analyzing the environment (signal analysis), and respond to the environment (response technique and high power transmission).
Electronic Warfare Solutions
Mistral’s Defense Division can help specify, develop, integrate, test and support leading-edge Electronic Warfare systems by implementing signal processing algorithms on DSP or FPGA platforms. Mistral provides DO-178B compliant software, testing, qualification, operational support, and system upgrades. With 20+ years of experience in designing RADAR and signal processing sub-systems, Mistral leverages on its extensive experience in embedded software, hardware engineering and RADAR systems to design custom, rugged electronic warfare solutions. Our engineering team has extensive experience in implementing a wide array of electronic warfare solutions like friend or foe identification (IFF), Direction Finding, electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic counter measures (ECM), Digital RF Memory (DRFM) sub-systems and wide-band jammers.
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. These ESM and ECM systems gather Electronic Warfare information via Electronic Intelligence (ELINT), Communications Intelligence (COMINT) and other receivers.
