There is a lot the armed forces worldwide are doing to set up their offices to speed up their electronic warfare reveals industry experts at Big Market Research. The new study, on global electronic warfare market added by these experts takes a closer look at the size and share of the industry. What’s more interesting is that countries such as China and the United States are getting ready to involve themselves in a contest to demonstrate their warfare capabilities. The main reason for this is definitely the growing tensions in the South China Sea. Besides, the UASF pilots have cleared by speculations about adding the electronic warfare initiatives for UAV training to be true.
Armed forces plan to set up new office to strengthen electronic warfare
The armed forces worldwide have become serious about speeding up their electronic warfare. Many armed forces have been vocal about their decision to set up a new vehicle with the aim to circumvent the heavy military acquisition procedures. This is important for areas that serve urgent requirements such as cyber as well as electronic warfare. In a latest incident the RCO decided to follow the footsteps of the Strategic Capabilities Office and Air Force of the Defense Department. These departments were actually set up to supply the critically important items to warfighters fast. Offering more insight into the recent developments Eric Fanning, the Army Secretary during the rollout of RCO in August 31 in Washington said “A goal of the Rapid Capabilities Office is to prioritize cross-domain and integrated solutions. It will put those solutions in front of senior leaders in enabling us to provide necessary pressure at the start of the process to drive innovation, continuous improvement and iteration.”
China is seen preparing for electronic warfare
Over the past few months the tensions especially in the South China Sea area has risen rapidly. This has compelled two countries, the United States and China to enter into a contest to prove their electronic warfare capabilities. If we are to believe the official sources, China has already started constructing a significant number of radar deployments on the islands located in the South China Sea. The country plans on engaging these facilities for various purpose. Such initiatives taken by the countries in the electronic warfare market plays an eminent role in improving the real-time awareness over a much larger area of a particular region. This bold move will now enable a highly sophisticated and effective targeting capabilities for the fast expanding arsenal of the anti-ballistic missiles.
Another major development in the electronic warfare market is the decision taken by the USAF pilots to add capabilities to their UAV training. The US Air Force has already revealed that it has been facing pilot shortages. Moreover, with the need for more and more
unmanned air vehicles that can function in most contested conditions officials feel the new training program will enable them to keep carrying out their operations even under the electronic attacks. Explaining more about the new initiative USAF said “As MQ-1/9 aircraft require satellite signals to operate, it becomes extremely important for aircrews to train toward mitigating potential signal interruptions.” USAF continued “RPA ECOs integrate with the affected MQ-1/9 aircrews, the relay site, space command, and others at the air operations center to mitigate signal interruptions.”
