Catch up on WEMEC’s latest case studies here.
COTS to MOTS
An increasing trend for government departments is to purchase systems or equipment which have been developed previously for different sectors or EMC environments. There are apparent advantages for the procurement of commercial equipment in terms of cost, availability, spares and proven functionality. However, challenges arise when integrating equipment to a military platform or applying to a military standard, which is substantially more onerous than the RF environment the system was designed and qualified to.
Counter UAV Design Assessment
WEMEC have been working in the Counter-UAV arena, assisting with design and assessment of mobile and fixed C-UAV systems. Our focus has been on both system effectiveness as well as the impact to the surrounding environment, including collateral damage, RF fratricide, and EMF exposure.
WEMEC has extensive experience of ISTAR systems and has been responsible for assessments on a number of systems.
Coupled with WEMEC’s knowledge and experience with ISTAR systems, WEMEC has a full understanding of the expected RF environments of operation both on the battlefield and on training grounds.
