据c4isr网1月1日报道

美陆军努力发展新的跨军种电子战能力,部署新兴电子战系统,重建冷战时期电子战力量。

作为陆军所称的新型部队设计更新,或作战单元重新设计组成部分,每个旅战斗部队将配备一个电子战排和一个独立的信号情报网络支持小组。

它们将作为未来“地面系统旅战斗部队”(TLS-BCT)即陆军首个综合电子战信号情报和网络平台进入作战序列。

该系统将装备Strykers战车,洛马公司和数字接收机技术公司为陆军研制样机。


Army shares details on new electronic warfare units

The Army has worked furiously to develop new electronic warfare capabilities for the force, rebuilding what it divested after the Cold War. With much attention paid to these new systems, the Army is also building new units across the service that will have to operate these emerging electronic warfare systems.

“We really have to make sure that our capabilities are aligned with the force structure that is being stood up,” Col. Kevin Finch, electronic warfare and cyber program manager with the Program Executive Office Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors, has explained in the past.

As part of what the Army calls new force design updates, or redesigns of its units, every brigade combat team will have an electronic warfare platoon and a separate signals intelligence network support team, Col. Daniel Holland, Army capabilities manager for electronic warfare, told C4ISRNET in written responses.

Both of these formations will operate the forthcoming Terrestrial Layer System Brigade Combat Team (TLS-BCT), the Army’s first integrated electronic warfare, signals intelligence and cyber platform. The system will be mounted on Strykers. Currently two companies, Lockheed Martin and Digital Receiver Technology, are building prototypes for the Army, which will choose one to advance.

The Army lacks electronic attack assets organic to brigades across its formations and echelons.

To date, the Army developed a pair of prototypes with the dual purpose of getting needed capability to forces in Europe and the Pacific and buying down risk for the TLS. These include the Tactical Electronic Warfare System (TEWS) — an electronic support and electronic attack platform — and the Flyer72 mounted Tactical Electronic Warfare Light (TEWL) — an electronic support-only platform.

In the interim, some formations have created specialized units to use these prototype systems, one being 3rd Brigade Combat Team/1st Armored Division, which received TEWS and created what it calls the Spectre platoon. That platoon is a task-organized signals intelligence and electronic warfare formation within the military intelligence company intended to integrate systems such as TEWS and Prophet, a signals intelligence system, into a single platoon for training and operations, Holland said.

The effort is helping to inform concepts for future multidomain operations, he added. The 3rd Brigade Combat Team/1st Armored Division consolidated all its 17 series — or cyber and electronic warfare personnel — into a signals intelligence and electronic warfare platoon to ensure complementary capabilities are integrated properly.

A few units in Europe have done similar alignments with their forces as well.
