The project, named Airborne Multi-Platform Electronic Warfare Capabilities (AMPEW Project Arrangement) is a joint venture between the United States and Australia, under which personnel from both countries will be working to develop Electronic Warfare related technologies for six years.

As the name suggests, the project is aimed to develop a next-gen airborne multi-platform electronic warfare suite, which is expected to increase capabilities of various manned and unmanned systems being developed; or aid in the up-gradation of in-production aerial vehicles.

Head of Air Force Capability, Air Vice-Marshal Cath Roberts, AM, CSC stated, “The AMPEW Project Arrangement establishes a co-operative project to jointly design, develop, test, and demonstrate dynamic multi-platform electromagnetic maneuver warfare resource allocation management (EMW RAM) tools and decision aids”.

AVM Roberts also pointed out the history of close military ties and collaborative efforts among the two countries.

“The primary objective is to decrease aircrew cognitive workload and automate Command and Control of manned and unmanned EW systems from stand-in to stand-off ranges. The Project Arrangement serves as the mechanism under which the United States Navy and Australia are executing the EMW RAM Coalition Warfare Program project and Future Naval Capability.

This is a partnership between Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division Office of Naval Research; Naval Air Systems Command; Royal Australian Air Force; Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Group; and Industry for both the US and Australia”, he said.

Electronic Warfare represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum waves to either disrupt, intercept, or sabotage enemy electronic systems in offensive operations or to protect interested assets using the same. The increasing use of advanced electronics in 21st-century weapons makes the employment of EW equipment is essential for the arsenal of any modern army.
