Prophet Enhanced – a New Tactical SIGINT for the U.S. Army

1802

The industry team led by General Dynamics C4 Systems has been working since May 2009 integrating the Prophet Enhanced Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) into the new Panther Medium Mine Protected Vehicle, (MMPV). So far the GDC4 led team has been awarded $74 millions as part of the Prophet Enhanced six-year program which has a total value of $866 million. The production of the first MMPV based system was completed in December 2009.

Operating from MMPV and HMMWV vehicles, Prophet Enhanced enable tactical commanders to securely and accurately detect, identify, locate and deter a wide range of signal emissions on the battlefield. The new SIGINT system is empowered by advanced, software-defined systems offering rapid and flexibility and response to changing threats and battlefield requirements.

Prime contractor General Dynamics C4 Systems has teamed with L-3 Communications and Northrop Grumman Information Technology for this program. To meet the goal of reducing overall cost of future system upgrades and enhancements, the Prophet Enhanced design incorporates pre-planned upgrades and technology insertions and standardized training.
