据c4isr网2020年6月18日报道,美陆军过去两个月授予两份合同,开始向旅级作战部队交付首批地面综合信号情报、电子战和网络能力计划“陆上作战系统”( Terrestrial Layer System)第一阶段产品。

波音任务和有效载荷全球销售营销主管保罗·图尔钦斯基透露,第一阶段将持续16个月,包括7月初组织初步设计审查及部队作战试验。

陆军最近授予两项长期电子战系统样机合同。4月,波音数字接收技术分公司(DRT)获陆军760万美元其他交易协议之一,在第一阶段建立TLS。洛马公司5月获600万美元第二份合同。

TLS涉及战场态势感知、通信情报和EW、电子攻击, 生成可行动情报,最终由部队提供保护。

DRT计划本月接收第一辆作战车辆,陆军计划第一型TLS将是医用型Stryker车。首支作战部队将于2022财年接收TLS。

Here’s what to expect from the Army’s new electronic warfare effort

With a pair of contract awards over the last two months, the Army has kicked off the first phase of its program to deliver to brigades the first ground-based integrated signals intelligence, electronic warfare and cyber capability — the Terrestrial Layer System.

This first phase will last 16 months, Paul Turczynski, director of Boeing’s missions and payloads global sales and marketing, told C4ISRNET.

The first phase will involve a preliminary design review in early July as well as operational tests with units.

Boeing subsidiary Digital Receiver Technology won one of the other transaction agreements from the Army in April to build TLS during phase one for $7.6 million. Lockheed Martin won the second award in May for $6 million.

TLS is about “situational understanding, it’s about sigint and EW, about electronic attack, producing actionable intelligence and ultimately leading to force protection,” Turczynski said.

It’s also the “ability to understand what’s going on in the [radio frequency] spectrum, characterize it, understand it and then be able to exploit the information that you receive,” he added. “Then act on it to degrade, deny, disrupt, manipulate the targeted force and really provide an overmatch capability in the spectrum, especially as the electromagnetic spectrum becomes [a] more contested environment.”

The Army’s intent is to select one of the vendors following the first 16-month period.

Turczynski said DRT expects to receive its first vehicle sometime this month. The Army said the first iterations of TLS will be mounted onto the medical variants of Stryker vehicles.

Turczynski said that in total, the company will provide three vehicles at the conclusion of phase one. These vehicles will go through operational test and evaluation so soldiers can get their hands on the technology and provide feedback. This step includes allowing the soldiers to see the interface, how it sits in the vehicle and the capabilities it proves, Turczynski added.

The Army will also be able to provide input throughout the process. Turczynski noted that under the OTA contract vehicle, there’s the ability to include customer design traits and ask for opinions.

The Army expects the first units to receive TLS in fiscal 2022.
