The Maritime Electronic Warfare System Integrated Capability (abbreviated the MEWSIC) of the Royal Navy has accomplished a significant milestone with the approval of its critical design review (CDR), per prime contractor Babcock.
With this approval, the project can proceed to manufacturing, testing, and acceptance rounds. MEWSIC is a critical component of the Navy’s Maritime Electronic Warfare Programme (popular as the MEWP), which aims to improve defensive capabilities against anti-ship missiles, according to the release.
MEWSIC increment 1 is designed to detect and identify radar signals at a larger range, with the goal of facilitating faster operational decision-making, higher situational awareness, and enhanced ship protection, per the business.
The system will be installed aboard a variety of Royal Navy vessels, including Queen Elizabeth aircraft carriers, Type 45 destroyers, and frigates of the Type 26 and Type 31 class.
The installation is part of a whopping £100 million, 13-year deal awarded in 2021, according to the announcement.
