Electronic-warfare (EW) systems must evolve to be effective as in the case of the Prophet EW system from General Dynamics Missions Systems. The base system is designed for full-time, ground-based signal-intelligence (SI), surveillance, and EW duties under all environmental conditions.
When fielded with a Prophet Control (PC) and Prophet-enhanced sensors, the system brings these capabilities to armored fighting vehicles such as Stryker all-terrain eight-wheeled vehicles produced by General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada (see image above).
When increased capability and intelligence-gathering capabilities are required for a wider range of tactical vehicles, the Prophet-Enhanced variant is a platform-independent modular system that's as effective installed onboard a vehicle as when used in mobile manpack applications. The system’s wideband beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) operation is based on its Project Manager Warfighter Information Network–Tactical (WIN-T) architecture.
Prophet-Enhanced EW systems recruit satellite communications (satcom) technology as part of extended data collection and distribution over long-range distances using its PC/Prophet Analytic Cell (PC/PAC) node of operation. The capabilities are provided by lightweight, integrated telecommunications and satcom systems that can be transported in the battlefield by armored vehicles and trailers.
