SRC Inc. has been awarded a $5.2 million contract from BAE Systems to build and deliver 40 Common Electronic Attack Receiver (CEAR) systems. The 40 CEAR systems will be manufactured in Syracuse, New York, by SRCTec LLC, an SRC subsidiary.

SRC's CEAR system performs real-time analysis of countermeasures for true-to-life training against RF threats. The system is a key component in both the Unmanned Threat Emitter (UMTE) and Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) systems, helping military aircraft in testing their ability to detect and defeat real-world threats.

The CEAR system can detect and evaluate the effectiveness of countermeasures including range and velocity deception, amplitude modulation, chaff and noise. It also supports reactive threat simulation, creating a more realistic training environment to better prepare our warfighters for an actual surface-to-air missile (SAM) attack.

“The CEAR system is crucial to closing the test and evaluation feedback loop, ensuring the effectiveness of our RF countermeasures to help our warfighters complete their mission and return home safely,” said Paul G. Tremont, CEO of SRC.
