Ground Electronic Warfare

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.

Symphony Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED)

What Is It?

Lockheed Martin’s Symphony is a Radio-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Defeat System. Able to defeat multiple simultaneous threats, Symphony is the preferred RCIED solution of Coalition and Partner Nation combat forces engaged in counter-insurgency operations.
