Army Picks General Dynamics, Lockheed to Design Terrestrial EW Systems

The U.S. Army has selected General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) to develop extended-range electronic warfare system concepts for the first leg of a potential $163 million prototype competition, Breaking Defense reported Thursday.

Phase one of the Army’s Terrestrial Layer System-Echelons Above Brigade program is valued at $15 million over 11 months.

The two companies will conduct design efforts under a shared other transaction agreement and will compete to present a platform capable of supporting signals intelligence, EW and cyber functions via a synchronized approach across large-scale combat missions.

A March 2021 request for information notice indicated the platform should work to help soldiers gain situational awareness and understanding, give them warnings and facilitate effects delivery.

The TLS-EAB project consists of five phases and supports a multidomain operations strategy at the branch.
