Key Features:

  • High performance portable and lightweight interception and location system
  • Automatic DF of every signal
  • PF of threat emissions form networked systems
  • Rapidly deployable, ready for use in under 5 minutes

SMARTSCAN MEWS is a communications surveillance system offering a high performance capability to search, intercept and locate adversary communications and emitters from 2MHz to 3GHz as an integral part of the TRL Integrated Electronic Warfare (IEW) solution just adopted by the UK MOD.

MEWS is designed to be used in the harshest of environments in Land, Maritime and Air and can be used as a standalone Direction Finding (DF) and communications monitoring capability or, as a networked system providing Position Fixing (PF).

Featuring L3 TRL’s innovative receiver technology, utilising advanced signal detection and clustering techniques, MEWS automatically detects and conducts DF on all signals, exploits Signals of Interest (SOI) and displays them to Operators, providing near real time actionable intelligence to Commanders. Used in tandem with TRL’s Modular Countermeasures Suite for Electronic Attack (MCS-EA) it provides a networked co-ordinated attack capability as part of an IEW solution.

MEWS automatically logs all parametric data and lines of bearing from the sensor, to provide a comprehensive database for immediate or post event analysis. All signal activity prior to a particular event such as a complex attack, can be recreated and displayed for comprehensive signals intelligence analysis.
