Block 2 Upgrade will include the receiver and antenna capabilities, as well as the combat system interface, of the legacy surface ship EW system.
Further, Mercury added that its Echotek Series' optimal fast tuning and performance will give the SEWIP
Block 2 Upgrade receiver and antenna capabilities together with the combat system interface of the legacy surface ship EW system and that the ICEWS is designed to scale all the Navy's surface fleet ship classes.
Block 2 will upgrade the Navy's AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic support measures system.
For the RIMPAC exercise, BAE Systems installed its proposed SEWIP
Block 2 system on a ship and detected simulated threat signals over a period of two weeks.
General Dynamics has been concerned with the SEWIP
Block 1 program from 2003, and received a low-rate initial production contract for the program in 2014.
Block 1 offers electronic warfare capabilities to existing as well as new ship combat systems.
General Dynamics has been involved with the SEWIP
Block 1 program since 2003 and received a low-rate initial production contracts for the SEWIP
Block 1B3 in 2014.
B3 will be integrated with other sensors and combat management systems to create the AN/SLQ-32(V)7 Electronic Warfare attack system.
program upgrades existing out-of-production AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare systems.
Contract Awarded for (Modification worth nearly $154M) Block 2 of the Navy s SEWIP
is an evolutionary acquisition program to upgrade the existing AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system through a modular, open-system approach.
The operational testing is part of a potential $147-million contract for 24 SEWIP
systems the military service ordered from Lockheed, Joe Ottaviano, the company s SEWIP
program director, was quoted as saying.
