Terma Introduces ALQ-213 ECM-Pod Enhancements


Terma is launching an upgrade for the AN/ALQ-213 Electronic Countermeasure system, offering a modern version of the Countermeasures Management System Processor otherwise known as the Electronic Warfare Management System (EWMS). The enhanced processor will support new capabilities including Radio Frequency sensor integration, sensor fusion, geo-location capabilities, networking, and situational awareness improvements.

The new module is part of the Reliability, Maintainability and Performance (RMP) upgrade solution to become available in 2013. The new module will significantly increase processing power and memory capacity yet retain physical form-fit compatibility with current installations. The modernized system will be fully compatible with F-16 and U.S. Army rotorcraft environmental requirements, additional interfaces to include a third Mil-std-1553 interface and Gigabit Ethernet, high reliability and Anti-tamper provisions.

The ALQ-213 Electronic Warfare Management System is operational on more than 2.000 fighters, transporters, and helicopters worldwide including more than 1.000 US Air Force F-16s and A-10s.
