CF Land Electronic Warfare Modernization

Project Type

Project Replace


The Canadian Armed Forces must be able to employ the electromagnetic spectrum effectively as an integral aspect of all military operations, while selectively denying or exploiting the adversary's use of it and protecting Canadian Armed Forces from the effects of hostile action taken using electromagnetic measures. The Canadian Forces Land Electronic Warfare Modernization project will improve the Canadian Armed Forces’ ability to monitor, manage and deliberately deny the use of the electromagnetic spectrum.


This project will satisfy the following capabilities; Command (electronic warfare planning management and analysis), Sense (electronic warfare support), Act, (counter command and control electronic attack), and Shield (Indications and Warnings) These capabilities will contribute to gaining the initiative and surprising the enemy by selectively exploiting or denying adversarial use of the electromagnetic spectrum in order to understand the potential adversary’s intent, prevent them from gaining a clear understanding of the operational environment, and ensure that they cannot impede friendly manoeuvre through the use of electromagnetic triggers.
