Sypris Wins Award for Electronic Warfare & Countermeasure Program


Reading time ( words)

Sypris Electronics, LLC, a subsidiary of Sypris Solutions, Inc., announced that it has recently received an award from a U.S. DOD contractor to produce and test multiple power supply modules for the upgrade of the electronic warfare suite of certain U.S. fighter jets. Production is expected to begin in 2021. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

According to news sources, the system will deliver fully integrated radar warning, situational awareness, geolocation, and self-protection capabilities to maximize mission effectiveness and survivability of the aircraft in highly contested environments. This advanced, all digital system enables deeper penetration against modern integrated defense systems and provides rapid response capabilities designed to protect the aircrew.

Further, the system will give current and future aircraft more survivability when operating near or in contested airspace. The system allows pilots to monitor, locate and jam enemy radars, as well as deceive them about the aircraft’s position and heading, by collecting and processing electromagnetic energy and instantaneously creating a comprehensive, 360-degree picture of the battlespace.

“The system is a leading-edge technology program for the fighter aircraft platform and we are excited to be a part of this technically-advanced enhancement,” said Mark Kane, Vice President & General Manager of Sypris Electronics. “Our customer is a worldwide leader in providing advanced electronic systems for the warfighter. We are pleased to have this opportunity to continue our relationship with this important customer.”

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
