HUDSON, N.H., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- British company BAE Systems says its new electronic warfare technology has successfully detected enemy threat signals during recent tests.

BAE recently demonstrated its surface-to-ship electronic warfare system at the Rim of the Pacific multinational maritime exercise near Hawaii. BAE has been working to develop an enemy threat detection technology to replace the U.S. Navy's current primary electronic warfare suite.

Officials say the new BAE system, the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program, will upgrade the Navy's AN/SLQ-32 (V) enemy threats warning system, which, when activated, deploys decoy counter missiles.

"The system performed flawlessly in sea tests, demonstrating its ability to provide the Navy with the world's most advanced maritime electronic warfare capability," Greg Smith, BAE Systems vice president of information dominance systems in Hudson, N.H., said in a statement.

"We demonstrated the maturity of a system that meets or exceeds the Navy's requirements for protecting our men and women at sea."
