Electronic Warfare

Harris

For 60 years, customers have turned to Harris capabilities in electronic warfare (EW) to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum. We provide the knowledge, technology and techniques needed for mission success against threats across air, land and sea domains. Electronic warfare products allow warfighters to focus their attention where it matters most – the mission. Our products address the demand for additional sensors, hardened electronics, higher bandwidth, multi-functional and multiplatform capability, and open architecture compatibility. The electromagnetic spectrum pervades every aspect of the modern mission. There is no success on the ground, at sea, in the air or in space without winning the airwaves.
