AN/PLM-4 Deployable Electronic Warfare Test System (DEWTS)
The DEWTS is unique in that it allows the users to perform a performance evaluation of the entire Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) System Under Test (SUT) using a portable, battery powered test set that can be deployed anywhere in the world without the need for facility AC power. The DEWTS operator interface is a Windows® Graphical User Interface (GUI) that permits the operator to perform a variety of frequency accuracy, receiver sensitivity and transmitter output tests using configuration controlled automatic test programs. The DEWTS test programs are developed using the DEWTS Test Program (TP) Wizard. The DEWTS TP allows Electronic Warfare (EW) system test engineers to quickly develop in-depth maintenance test programs without the need for knowledge of the DEWTS operational software.
The DEWTS footprint supports the Aerospace Expeditionary Force (AEF) allowing advanced EW system testing in austere forward operating locations.
