BAE Systems to Develop New Navy Electronic Warfare Tech; Steve Hedges Comments

Bae-systems-logo_ExecutiveBiz1BAE Systems has received an $11 million contract from the Office of Naval Research to develop a new electronic warfare technology intended to help detect and determine radio frequency sources.

The Full-Spectrum Staring Receiver will work to monitor the battlefield, track emitters, issue threat warning and cue countermeasure methods, BAE Systems said Monday.

Steve Hedges, FSSR principal investigator at BAE Systems, said the program aims to help meet the spectrum awareness requirements of the Navy to ensure mission preparedness of the service branch’s ships and aircraft.

Navy ships will be able to detect threat emitters over a wide coverage of electromagnetic spectrum with the FSSR technology, according to BAE.

BAE Systems will work with S2 Corp., University of Colorado Boulder, Montana State University, Purdue University, HRL Laboratories and the Naval Research Laboratory to develop the technology.
