CTS enhances Resolve COMINT system

21 September 2017

Chemring Technology Solutions (CTS) launched a major capability upgrade of its Resolve lightweight integrated communications intelligence (COMINT) and direction finding (DF) system at DSEI 2017.

The legacy system, which is in use with 13 countries, could be used in the manpack, vehicle, and shipborne roles, providing an on-the-move monitoring and DF capability. However, for accurate DF results, separate calibration to the platform that the system was mounted on was required. The upgrade, development of which was completed earlier in 2017, overcomes this problem: the new version is platform agnostic, requiring no recalibration when transferred between different platforms.

Gavin O’Connell, CTS’ director of business and sales, told Jane’s that the solution had been to make better use of the receiver to leverage the antenna’s capability.
