Electronic Warfare

Wide array of Electronic Warfare systems including Friend or Foe Identification (IFF), Electronic Support Measures (ESM), Electronic Counter Measures (ECM), and Direction Finding.


Electronic Warfare systems enable warfare within the Electro-magnetic spectrum (EMS). A range of Electronic warfare solutions is used in gaining battlefield intelligence or combat power by defense forces worldwide.

Electronic Warfare refers to any action involving the use of electromagnetic waves to sense, detect, locate, track and communicate with systems on air, land or water. Electronic Warfare solutions use focused energy, electromagnetic signals such as radio or infrared to sense, track, or communicate. Electronic warfare systems must have a way to collect and make sense of the signals in their environment. Electronic Warfare systems 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 responding to the environment (response technique and high power transmission). EW can be broadly classified into three major categories – Ground-based EW, Surface EW and Airborne EW. Mistral provides cutting-edge solutions for all the above-mentioned categories.

Electronic Warfare Solutions

Mistral’s Defense Division can help spec, design, integrate, test and maintain leading-edge Electronic Warfare systems by implementing complex signal processing algorithms on DSP or FPGA platforms. Mistral provides Electronic Warfare systems that are safety certifiable, according to the safety critical needs specified by DO-178C and DO-254 standards. We design and develop Electronic Warfare systems with DO-178B compliant software, and provides services including testing, qualification, operational support, and system upgrades.

Mistral develops and offers advanced Electronic Warfare Solutions, leveraging most modern warfare technologies, to detect and avert threats from Land, Air and Sea. Mistral’s Aerospace and Defense Division has unparalleled experience in developing advanced Electronic Warfare Systems that provide real-time situational awareness to the users.

Electronic Warfare Systems

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. These electronic support measures (ESM) and electronic countermeasures (ECM) systems gather Warfare information via Electronic Intelligence (ELINT), Communications Intelligence (COMINT) and other receivers.
