AUGUSTA, Ga., Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Raytheon has unveiled its Cyber and Electromagnetic Battle Management tool at the U.S. Army's Cyber Quest event, the company announced Monday.
The Army event informs cybersecurity requirements and priorities, Raytheon said in a statement.
The battle management tool integrates cyber and electromagnetic spectrum awareness capabilities into the service's Electronic Warfare Program Management Tool, an Army program of record since 2014.
Raytheon's new system provides a shared situational understanding of electronic warfare, cyber and management, and control of organic assets.
The tool allows electronic warfare officers to determine the best path forward without being jammed or discovered, Raytheon said.
It also allows users to jam an enemy's communication ability and disrupt the ability to use cyber emitters.
Raytheon's newest tool offers operational and life-cycle cost benefits, the company said, including increased mission effectiveness, reduced planning cycles, coordination of effects, collaboration with other elements of mission command, electronic warfare and cyber effectiveness analysis and reduced training costs.
