Ashburn Va. 03 April 2019 . Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today announced that it is collaborating with General Dynamics Mission Systems to deliver open architecture artificial intelligence (AI) based commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions for Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic warfare (EW) situational awareness applications. 

“We are excited to collaborate with General Dynamics Mission Systems to bring the cutting-edge advantages of machine learning to deployed EW situational awareness applications,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “Our supercomputing class CHAMP-XD1 module is an ideal processor for SignalEye software, easing and accelerating the delivery of RF threat detection to our warfighters.”

The combination of General Dynamics Mission Systems’ SignalEye threat detection software and Curtiss-Wright’s Intel® Xeon® D processor-based CHAMP-XD1 module provides system designers with a deployable COTS solution for RF spectrum situational awareness that automatically classifies signals through the use of machine learning.  “The evolving EW and SIGINT threat confronting warfighters today requires an integrated solution,” said Bill Ross, Vice President, RF and Broadband Products at General Dynamics Mission Systems. “By combining our SignalEye machine learning software with Curtiss-Wright’s CHAMP-XD1 processor, we can provide warfighters with a greater understanding of the RF threats on the battlefield.”
