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 triggers. 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 five capabilities, including electronic warfare support, force protection electronic attack, counter command and control electronic attack, electronic warfare planning management and analysis, and electronic warfare vehicles. 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.
