Canadian Forces Electronic Warfare Support

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


This project will deliver an enhanced Electronic Warfare Operational Support System (EWOSS) capability for the Department of National Defence (DND).


The increased exploitation of the electromagnetic environment by adversarial forces has a direct impact on the Canadian Armed Forces’ (CAF) ability to operate in the surroundings in which they are tasked. DND has a requirement to modernize its EWOSS, so the CAF can maintain its operational effectiveness when tasked in a modern electromagnetic environment. To meet its requirements, DND will acquire an EWOSS as well as a 10 years In-Service Support commitment commencing in 2025.
