Raytheon is resuming work on development of an electronic warfare planning management software program for the U.S. Army, the company said.

Resumption of the project to give the Army automated tools to help plan and execute complex electronic warfare missions was authorized by the service following a decision by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, which denied a protest by Sotera Defense Solutions Inc. over the awarding of the five-year contract.

The project, in which intelligence and terrain data are combined to give a common operational picture of the electromagnetic spectrum, is part of a broader program for managing technologies to neutralize and exploit enemy signals.

"This program will equip combat forces with essential EW mission planning capabilities they didn't have before," said Travis Slocumb, vice president of Electronic Warfare Systems in Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. "The benefits include enhanced situational awareness, actionable intelligence and synchronized operations."
