Airborne Electronic Warfare
Crews flying B-52 and B-1B aircraft have a challenging and essential mission, and as global military strategy pivots, they face a range of new threats. With larger radar cross sections and missions designed to penetrate well-defended and contested airspace, strategic aircraft have specific and complex needs when it comes to electronic warfare situational awareness and self- protection.
Tactical fighters and rotary aircraft experience a wide range of missions, from penetrating contested airspace and suppression of air defense systems, to providing close air support, reconnaissance, insertion and exfiltration. Their aircrews face wildly varying conditions, including supersonic speeds, low altitude flight and densely populated hostile environments. Remaining focused on these complex, critical missions in the face of proliferating threats is a huge challenge for aviators.
Harris airborne EW systems support and enable missions across all these conditions by helping aviators understand the threat landscape in order to detect, avoid, and where necessary, defeat threats at every level of engagement.
We work closely with our customers—including all U.S. military services, the special operator community and international aviators—to provide support and keep capabilities current in the face of ever-changing threats.
