The U.S. Army has teamed up with industry to develop cyber and electronic warfare capabilities under the $982M R4 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and is now issuing task orders to support the service's cyber electromagnetic activities, Army Technology reported Wednesday.

The service aims to develop an integrated signals intelligence and EW platform – Terrestrial Layer Intelligence System – designed to replace the Multi-Functional Electronic Warfare Ground and Dismounted system.

Northrop Grumman is one of the companies that secured spots on the IDIQ contract and is vying for EW-related task orders across cybersecurity, research and technology development, technical support, integration, performance verification and logistics support areas.

“Our work on R4 will help ensure our army forces can rapidly identify, develop and leverage the full range of CEMA effects necessary to deter, deny and prevail on the battlefield,“ said Ginger Wierzbanowski, vice president for cyber and intelligence mission solutions at Northrop's mission systems business.

Other companies that won spots on the R4 contract are General Dynamics, CACI International and Perspecta.
