SYRACUSE, N.Y. SRC Inc., a research and development company, won a $5.2 million contract from BAE Systems to build and deliver 40 Common Electronic Attack Receiver (CEAR) systems. The 40 CEAR systems will be manufactured by SRCTec, LLC, an SRC subsidiary.
SRC's CEAR system performs real-time analysis of countermeasures including range and velocity deception, amplitude modulation, chaff and noise. It also provides realistic training against RF threats by supporting reactive threat simulation. This better prepares warfighters for an actual surface-to-air missile attack.
The system is a key component in both the Unmanned Threat Emitter (UMTE) and Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) systems, helping military aircraft in testing their ability to detect and defeat real-world threats.
