Testing can be conducted on pods, on-board self-protection electronic countermeasures systems, radar warning receiver systems and electronic warfare support measures systems. The self-contained unit is small in size, operates by battery or external AC power and can be carried and operated easily by a single person,
Jennifer Schoonover, vice president of the Exelis Communications Solutions business area said, "This unique capability allows airmen to confidently enter harm's way knowing their electronic warfare systems will detect current and emerging enemy threats in the battle space."
