CICERO, N.Y. — SRC, Inc. announced it has been awarded 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 in Central New York by SRCTec, LLC, an SRC subsidiary.
SRC’s CEAR system “performs real-time analysis of countermeasures for true-to-life training against RF threats,” SRC said in a release. 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.”
The CEAR system can detect and assess the effectiveness of countermeasures including “range and velocity deception, amplitude modulation, chaff and noise.” It also supports reactive threat simulation, creating a “more realistic training environment to better prepare our warfighters for an actual surface-to-air missile (SAM) attack,” SRC said.
SRC is a nonprofit corporation headquartered in Cicero that focuses on areas that include defense, environment, and intelligence. SRCTec is the for-profit subsidiary of SRC.
