ELECTRONIC WARFARE SYSTEMS

Safety certifiable designs that meet DO-178C and DO-254 standards.

ELECTRONIC WARFARE

Electronic Warfare systems enable warfare within the Electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). A wide range of Electronic Warfare solutions is used for battlefield intelligence and combat power. As the Electronic Warfare Technology continues to evolve, Electronic Warfare Systems and related solutions will make a massive impact on Defense forces worldwide.

Electronic Warfare Technology

Electronic Warfare Technology 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 (EW) technology is the use of electronic sensors, communication systems, and electronic countermeasures to disrupt enemy systems, safeguard friendly forces and gain a tactical advantage over the situation. EW Solutions comprise a wide range of products, services, and strategies crafted to tackle distinct challenges within the realm of electronic warfare. These Systems leverage cutting-edge technology and expertise to elevate situational awareness, operational effectiveness, and mission success in complex electromagnetic environments.

Electronic Warfare solutions use electromagnetic signals such as radio or infrared to sense, track, or communicate. It involves the use of numerous electronic devices and techniques to jam, intercept, detect, and deceive enemy electronic signals and communications. Electronic Warfare systems can also be used to detect, track and monitor objects of interest in air, ground or sea. Electronic warfare systems have three main capabilities, viz., sense the environment (sense and collect), analyze the environment (signal processing and analysis), and respond to the environment (response technique and high power transmission). Electronic Warfare systems can broadly be classified into three major categories – Ground-based EW, Surface EW and Airborne EW. Mistral provides cutting-edge solutions for all the above-mentioned categories.
