Briefing on EWOS at the state-of-the-art Selex ES Lincoln Facility
Briefing on EWOS at the state-of-the-art Selex ES Lincoln Facility

An exclusive invitation to visit the Lincoln facility of UK-based Selex ES, for an in-depth experience at their Electronic Warfare Operational Support (EWOS) offerings, provided an excellent opportunity to get a closer look at EWOS and the crucial role it plays in today’s battlefield. Over a packed day full of briefings on EWOS, this correspondent was taken through the entire spectrum of EWOS, starting from the various products and tools used to analysis and testing of the mission data file using hardware-in-the-loop simulators.

Selex EW is a full spectrum Electronic Warfare (EW) company with a proud history over many decades. The company offers fully integrated EW systems and provides support solutions apart from information management (integration of sub-systems at the information level). Depending on the requirement of the customer, EW sensors and counter measures equipment are sold individually or as part of an integrated system. An annual GBP 15 million spend on R&D alone allows Selex ES to develop the underlying technologies for receivers and transmitters along with their sub systems. Without these core technologies, one cannot develop truly effective EW sensors and counter measures.

EWOS is designed to facilitate the safe conduct of perilous missions and acts as a mission enabler, providing operational aircrews with updated situational awareness (this helps in understanding the threat environment around them and how it will change). EWOS provides situational awareness to the warfighter, through support of EW systems with the correct and appropriate data along with training, education and briefing of EW operators and crew. Successful implementation of EWOS results in faster and more accurate identification of targets.
