US Army to Transition SIGINT System to Program of Record by 2025
The U.S. Army wants to create a program of record combining signals intelligence capabilities that commanders already use by fiscal year 2025.
Officials said doing so would enhance efforts to sustain and upgrade the Theater SIGINT System, a collection of products rapidly developed to address pressing concerns, C4ISRNET reported Saturday.
The Department of Defense is increasingly prioritizing electronic warfare tools and sensors such as jammers and communications interceptors as it reorients toward conflict with China and Russia. It is also restructuring around divisions and corps as core units instead of brigades, which military officials regard as too small for larger-scale fights.
Brig. Gen. Ed Barker, the head of Program Executive Office – Intelligence, Electronic Warfare & Sensors, said TSIGS will provide a forward deployable and remote controllable SIGINT system to commanders at levels above corps.
He told reporters earlier in December that, in addition to TSIGS, the Army is also preparing to launch programs such as the High Altitude Platform for deep sensing and the Spectrum Situational Awareness System in FY 2025.
