BAE Systems along with L3 Technologies has begun transitioning its Compass Call Electronic Warfare (EW) system from US Air Force's EC-130H aircraft to Gulfstream 550 aircraft to improve stand-off jamming capability and also counter communications and radar threats.
In 2017, BAE Systems and its partners completed the initial design review of the Compass Call weapon system, and the final design review is planned for this fall.
Initial modifications of the first G550 are underway, with the first two aircraft fielded in 2023. A total of 10 new aircraft are planned, the company said in a statement Monday.
This ‘Cross Deck initiative’, as it is commonly called, will enable the U.S. Air Force to continue disrupting enemy command and control capabilities in denied environments well into the future.
BAE Systems will continue to sustain the electronics for the fleet of EC-130H Compass Call aircraft while it develops, procures, manufactures, and integrates electronics for the new fleet.
