New Integrated Electronic Warfare Solution to be featured at Milipol Paris 2013

Gloucestershire-based defence manufacturer L-3 TRL will be showcasing its new SMARTSCAN Integrated Electronic Warfare (IEW) solution at the Milipol 2013 exhibition, Paris Nord Villepinte, 19-22 November.


Extending its comprehensive Electronic Warfare (EW) portfolio, L-3 TRL’s SMARTSCAN IEW Subsystem is modular, scalable and interoperable to provide turnkey EW capabilities in support of land, littoral or air threats, as well as challenging tactical scenarios. SMARTSCAN IEW combines the market-proven capabilities of L-3 TRL’s SMARTSCAN range of spectrum surveillance products and its award-winning BROADSHIELD® Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) solution, together with ‘best-of-breed’ third-party sensors to create an integrated tactical EW solution.


SMARTSCAN IEW is designed to accept a wide range of sensor information into its operator-definable Graphical User Interface (GUI). This near-real-time information can be used for spectral analysis, mission planning and tasking of other ISTAR assets for target identification, situational awareness or to mount an electronic attack as a mission progresses.


“The ability to offer integrated, flexible, multi-role and multi-platform EW solutions is imperative in today’s market,” said Richard Flitton, vice president of L-3 TRL’s Electronic Warfare Division. “Our latest SMARTSCAN IEW solution is functionally rich and provides tactical commanders with the complete EW operational picture needed to support effective decision-making and counter emerging threats.”

SMARTSCAN IEW consists of a family of integrated EW sensors and effectors that provide the deployed commander with a tactical EW capability from both organic and non-organic assets. The modular and scalable system dramatically improves the commander’s ability to monitor, seize, retain and exploit advantage within the electromagnetic spectrum.


A typical agile and tactical SMARTSCAN IEW system has a small form factor and can be run from a single ruggedized laptop, whilst larger systems can be integrated with a wider C4ISR system when required, utilising one or more ruggedized server computers.


L-3 TRL’s SMARTSCAN IEW is easy to configure, scale and set up, either on or offline. Designed to deliver an effective, current and complete tactical understanding of the EW environment, the functionality SMARTSCAN IEW provides is paramount in today’s market.
