HUDSON, N.H., May 7 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has received a final electronic-warfare system proposal from the BAE Systems and General Dynamics partnership.

BAE teamed with General Dynamics' Advanced Information Systems unit to develop a proposal for the Navy's Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program Block 2 upgrade competition.

According to a news release, the BAE and General Dynamics Sea Lightning team announced it submitted its final proposal for the SEWIP upgrade competition that "will seamlessly integrate (electronic-warfare) open-architecture capabilities with the Navy's latest-generation combat direction and management systems."

"Sea Lightning provides the foundation for electronic warfare in the maritime environment," Greg Smith, BAE Systems vice president of information dominance systems, said in a statement.

"It was born from the need to better protect Navy surface ships against the evolving cruise missile threat, and will provide the Navy the capability they've asked for."
