Ground EW

Ground EW
Adapt. On the modern battleground, enemies can convert something as harmless as a cellphone into a devastating weapon. Lockheed Martin seeks to outpace the evolution if IED techniques through a system as adaptable as the U.S. forces that use it.

Lockheed Martin provides global ground EW solutions to U.S. forces, as well as partner nations, through a unique Next Generation open architecture product platform and open business model. Our multi-function/multi-mission capability builds on the successful Symphony Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) Defeat system. Since its initial fielding in 2006, over 4000 Symphony C-IED systems have been delivered and currently support United States coalition and partner nation warfighters.
