The purpose of our EW solutions are to deny the opponent the advantage of, and ensure friendly unimpeded access to, the EM spectrum. Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions' EW products and services span the three major Electronic Warfare subdivisions:
- Electronic Attack (EA)
- Electronic Protection (EP)
