Flyer Defense Delivers A-GMV Vehicles to GDMS for Tactical Electronic Warfare Light (TEWL) Integration

Flyer Defense delivered vehicles contracted by General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) for integration with the Tactical Electronic Warfare Light (TEWL) system, in August.

Flyer received a contract to build the Army Ground Mobility Vehicles (A-GMV), based on the Flyer 72 design, in May. Flyer announced that all vehicles were delivered more than a month earlier than the contractual due dates.

The vehicles have been shipped to General Dynamics Mission Systems in Scottsdale, AZ where they will be outfitted with the TEWL system and shipped directly to U.S. Army airborne units. The TEWL system fills a critical electronic warfare (EW) requirement for U.S. Army airborne units.

Tactical Electronic Warfare System (TEWS)

TEWS is a Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) that provides an Electronic Warfare Support (ES) and Electronic Attack (EA) capability to Brigade Combat Teams (BCT). Each TEWS system consists of an integrated suite of radio frequency (RF) antennas and receivers, processors, and EA hardware. TEWS processing includes Machine-learning signal recognition software as well as integration of Intelligence Community (IC) signal detectors and EA techniques.

Tactical Electronic Warfare System Light (TEWL)

TEWL is the corresponding TEWS Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) for Light BCT formations. Each TEWL system consists of an integrated suite of radio frequency (RF) antennas and receivers, and processors on a Flyer 72 vehicle. TEWL conducts Electronic Warfare Support (ES) using the same or similar hardware and software, to include the Machine-learning signal recognition software as well as integration of Intelligence Community (IC) signal detectors in the Tactical Electronic Warfare System (TEWS).
