Proven electronic support solutions - from a single source

Electronic warfare (EW) uses electronic equipment in military operations to assert friendly forces’ dominance of the electromagnetic operating environment while denying the adversary’s access to the same. One aspect of EW involves reconnaissance and surveillance of the electromagnetic environment to gain situational awareness, an activity traditionally called electronic support measures (ESM), which can be further broken down into radar electronic support measures (RESM) and communcation electronic support measures (CESM).

Today, the branch of EW concerned with detection, direction finding, locating, interception, identification, recording and analysis of radar and communications signals is called electronic support (ES). Its purpose is to identify and evaluate threats, add detail to the situation picture, trigger countermeasures and gain intelligence during operations. Electronic support is a critical source of information for forward-deployed decision makers.

Rohde & Schwarz offers scalable strategic and tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems for various platforms (air / land / sea). These are available with exchangeable sensor subsystems for either manual or automatic ESM as well as SIGINT operations. The right solution for challenging and complex user requirements can be selected from a wide range of antennas, receivers, direction finders with multichannel signal processing, and analysis units.

Naval forces worldwide are facing changes in their mission requirements. Besides the original forms of naval warfare, maritime and littoral forward presence operations in crisis areas have become a challenge. The Rohde & Schwarz naval electronic support system combines radar and communications electronic support to protect national strategic and economic interests and prepare for current and future missions.

Mobile C-ESM systems

Vehicle based mobile reconnaissance systems provide unique capabilities. Vehicles allow quick deployment, feature an integrated power supply and offer operators a comfortable working environment. The systems are integrated into different types of vehicles, depending on the missions to be performed. Commanders deploy mobile systems for protecting friendly forces and enhancing the situational awareness.

Portable C-ESM systems

Soldiers can be outfitted with man-portable communications electronic support measures (C-ESM) systems, allowing users to conduct operations in difficult topographies and over the “last mile”, where no vehicle can gain access. These systems provide highest flexibility in threat detection and for getting an overview about wireless communications in an area of interest. Besides their monitoring capabilities, portable C-ESM systems can provide the line of bearing (LOB) and even can locate the source of emissions.
