CLIFTON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
XLS) will showcase its industry-leading technologies at the 2014
Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) in Tampa, Florida,
May 20-22. The company will highlight a select range of systems designed
to support the evolving mission set of the special operations community.
Capability Pod (ACaP)
With deep expertise in the strategic growth platforms of critical
networks, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) and
analytics, and electronic warfare (EW), Exelis technologies support the
capabilities special operators need to accomplish their missions across
all domains of the current and future battlespace.
“Exelis has decades of experience developing systems that command the
electromagnetic spectrum, enabling advanced real-time situational
awareness and keeping special operations forces ahead of emerging
threats,” said Andy Dunn, vice president of business development for the
Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems business. “As the tip of
the spear in America’s armed forces, special operators are among the
first to confront the shifting nature of military engagements, and
Exelis will continue innovating to help them address the wide range of
challenges they face.”
To learn more or participate in technology demonstrations, please visit
booth #1523 at the conference. Some of the Exelis technologies on
display at 2014 SOFIC are listed below:
The ACaP is an airborne jammer that
provides electronic countermeasures against modern airborne and
ground-based radio frequency (RF) threats. The ACaP currently flies on
U.S. Air Force F-15 and F-16 and U.S. Navy F/A-18 fighter aircraft.
Active/Reactive Counter-IED System
EGON is a counter-
improvised explosive device (IED) system that addresses all current
and emerging radio-controlled IED threats. It is about half the size
and weight and consumes half the power of prior systems. EGON has been
operationally deployed since mid-2010 and can be tailored to meet
individual mission requirements in less than 15 minutes.
This system integrates the ExelisiAware
Tactical Mobility Night Vision Goggle with the high data rate SpearNet
radio, using Jagwire™
to provide on-demand access to critical geospatial intelligence.The
individual soldier system integrates voice, video and data streams,
allowing commanders to see what soldiers see and send instructions
like texts, alerts or images directly to the goggle’s display in a
light and sound-secure way.
Protection and Transmission Systems (iProTxS)
lightweight technology that enables uninterrupted communications
between combat network radios, even in the presence of nearby jamming
signals, without compromising network security. It can be quickly
integrated with existing radios and electronic countermeasure systems
on both mounted and dismounted platforms.
The cloud-based Jagwire software solution
makes the discovery, management and dissemination of geospatial data
and video easier than ever. It integrates advanced ENVI
analytics and enables the quick discovery and transformation of LiDAR
(light detection and ranging), spectral imagery, video and other
geospatial data types into actionable intelligence for improved
mission planning and decision-making.
Warning System (AN/AAR-60(V)2)
Advance missile warning
systems and countermeasures against infrared-guided missiles have
become vital for survivability. The AN/AAR-60(V)2 is a proven,
true-imaging sensor device optimized to detect spectral radiation
emitted from approaching missile exhaust plumes, allowing special
operators to react early and appropriately.
Electronic Warfare Capability (NEWC)
In a constantly
changing EW environment, advanced technologies are required to provide
the warfighter with full-dimensional situational awareness to enable
mission success. NEWC is designed to allow any rotary wing platform to
receive and transmit aircraft survivability, situational awareness and
threat information as a networked application — enabling the sharing
of critical information with several helicopters at once.
Warning Locator (RWL)
The RWL is an airborne sensor that
provides fast, accurate geo-location and situational awareness of
ground-based RF sources and threats. The RWL can be installed on fixed
wing aircraft, helicopters and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
SwitchplusIP interoperable communications solutions are the
leading-edge technology of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), with
enhanced capabilities for mission-critical applications. These
solutions provide defense organizations with the ability to
communicate reliably and securely across the seas or the skies,
reducing the time needed to respond to threats.
