We changed from electronic reconnaissance
to active jamming to defeat searchlight-control and gun-laying radars.
QinetiQ will provide electronic reconnaissance
technologies and LogicaCMG will contribute ground systems, information management and security services and technologies.
From Wright-Patterson, we flew to various air bases to show off the equipment to generals and other interested dignitaries, since electronic reconnaissance

The US Navy is currently fielding unmanned undersea vehicles for minefield reconnaissance, but electronic reconnaissance
, using a mast deployed by the vehicle (or even a buoy deployed by the vehicle) is clearly a possibility.
We also have industry-leading expertise in tactical data communications, underwater communications, interference cancellation, electronic reconnaissance
and surveillance, and advanced sensor and antenna technology.
For the electronic warfare (EW) specialist, key exhibits were Sukhoi's optical and electronic reconnaissance
Su-24MR Fencer-E aircraft and the presence of the X-31 high-speed anti-radiation missile on the wing stations of another Sukhoi product, the Su-35 interceptor.
The original maritime equipment was removed from the airframe and replaced with a highly sophisticated and sensitive suite of systems used for electronic reconnaissance
that provides combat support to the military commander.
