The Directorate of Science and Technology for US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has issued a Request for Information (RfI) for the Counter-Electronics Countermeasures Seeker (CECMS) in support of the Next-Generation Effects Capability Focus Area (NGEFCA) programme.
The RfI seeks to generate a better understanding of the technologies underpinning CECMS in order to assess their potential impact on NGEFCA. The command seeks to further develop the ability to detect, identify and target targets featuring EW emissions that threaten GPS, command data-links, communications frequencies and counter-battery radar. UAS figure high on the list of the genres of targets the command must be considering. The command also stipulates that size, weight, power and data interface characteristics must support the pertinent devices’ integration onto Class I and II UAS, as an additional sensor on larger ISR platforms and as seekers for small precision-guided munitions.
Originally published on 19 October, updated on 25 October, responses are sought no later than 20 November 2023.
