Today’s battlefield has been amplified by advancements in electronic warfare (EW). The proliferation of high-end electronics and the evolution of commercial technologies have given adversaries ranging from nation-states to non-state actors unprecedented capabilities. Terrorists have access to increasingly sophisticated means to deliver and detonate improvised explosive devices. Peer and near-peer competitors are rapidly modernizing their systems for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; communications; command and control; air defense; as well as systems to detect and disrupt U.S. forces.
All of these electronic systems communicate and operate using signals emitted into the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) – the range of frequencies that comprises the EW battlespace. The U.S. government is vigorously investing in EW solutions to enable our ground forces to exploit modern adversary signals and defeat their systems while simultaneously reducing our own EMS “signatures” – or characteristic signals – during the conduct of multi-domain battle.
CACI is answering this pressing national security priority by delivering precision EW solutions that offer a range of effects against adversary signals. Traditional effects such as noise jamming have proven heavy-handed, delivering a lot of power at the expense of risking operators’ locations by lighting up the EMS. CACI offers a broader range of EW solutions by applying decades of unique expertise in the collection, processing, exploitation, and attack of digital signals, such as those emitted by adversary weapons systems. We apply this specialized signals expertise to achieve precision solutions that enable U.S. commanders and operators to choose the EW effects they want to create and significantly mitigate their risk of detection and counterfire.
Our EW solutions enable commanders to target specific networks and systems, while protecting ground forces by making it difficult to locate or identify their electronic signature in the EMS. Backed by industry-leading cyber, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence experience and expertise, CACI is answering the challenge of today’s modern battlespace.
