A New ‘Sea’ of Technology to Transform Electronic Warfare in Navy Ships

Last month, an international maritime exercise known as the RIMPAC exercise was conducted in the Hawaiian Islands, and during this exercise sailors discovered a new system that would transform the future of electronic warfare at sea. This system is known as Electronic Warfare Battle Management (EWBM).


The EWBM is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and will help marines and sailors “coordinate electronic countermeasure responses to inbound threats faster than is possible through traditional voice communications, reducing the need to respond with expensive munitions.”


The EWBM makes it easier for people on ships to digitally share information with those in aircrafts. The software adds speed and precision to coordination processes that usually take a long time over the radio.


"Electronic warfare is about controlling and using energy while taking away our adversary's ability to use it. With this system, Sailors and Marines will be able to exchange spectrum and threat information between platforms so they can make more informed decisions in situations where time and accuracy are crucial," David Tremper, ONR program officer, said.


The ONR hopes to bring the EWBM system from research to development within the next five years.
