L-3 TRL Signs Memorandum of Understanding with Drumgrange

L-3 TRL Technology (L-3 TRL) announced today that it has entered into a collaborative project with Drumgrange Ltd to enhance its SMARTSCAN Joint Tactical Integrated Electronic Warfare (IEW) solution. The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly address market demand for more capable tactical IEW and EW products.

The new L-3 TRL/Drumgrange collaboration supports the development of a latest-technology, modular, multi-role, multi-platform tactical IEW capability that equips the commander with an agile solution for rapid deployment across the joint battlespace. This solution will provide operators and their commanders with the means to quickly gather and disseminate information and intelligence essential for operations in the littoral and inshore domains, giving them a critical fighting edge.

We are very excited about our collaboration with Drumgrange, which will provide both companies with additional opportunities to serve the marketplace” said Richard Flitton, vice president of L-3 TRL’s Electronic Warfare division. “This strategic partnership also paves the way for L-3 TRL to now support littoral, amphibious and riverine EW requirements.”

L-3 TRL has extensive capability in the design, development and support of Spectrum Surveillance solutions for government, defence and intelligence agencies. Rapidly deployable on a variety of platforms, its SMARTSCAN IEW offering provides the tactical commander with a near-real-time combined EW picture, which supports the dynamic tasking, management and control of assigned tactical assets in order to exploit the EM spectrum for tactical advantage.

With its deployed and proven XTreme tablet PC and other technologies, Drumgrange delivers comprehensive maritime systems integration, secure tactical communications and situational awareness systems.
