You may wonder why the JED staff bothered to publish such a resource guide. After all, the Internet can provide information about companies that supply EW and SIGINT products and services. And there are many other military technology resource guides out there. Both of these facts are true. Our goal, however, is to publish a resource guide that is both convenient (try conducting a Google search to find EW antenna manufacturers, for example) and represents the full scope of the EW and SIGINT market. There are well over 1,000 companies worldwide that are doing business in the EW and SIGINT market. This may seem like a large number, but it is actually quite small when you consider the diversity and technological complexity of EW and SIGINT systems, as well as the variety of specific EW and SIGINT missions that must be supported. In addition, more countries are buying and developing EW and SIGINT capabilities each year, and the industrial base is expanding on a similar scale to support these customers. Another question you may ask is why the EW and SIGINT market needs a resource guide at all. Most of the companies in this market have traditionally worked with a small number of trusted suppliers. While that may be part of the “culture” of the EW and SIGINT market, there are many evolving trends that challenge that paradigm. Take, for example, the massive DOD effort to develop and field 40,000 IED jammers over the past several years. For the IED systems manufacturers, this acquisition pattern drove major supply chain challenges. This resource guide can help identify potential suppliers, whether you are seeking anything from microwave components, integrated subsystems, software developers or training services. The 2010 EW/SIGINT Resource Guide represents a humble beginning for a tool that I expect will grow each year in terms of size and complexity. That said, please contact me at if your company is providing products or services to the EW and SIGINT market, but it was not included in this Resource Guide. In the coming months, the AOC will be introducing an on-line buyers’ guide and we will be happy to include your information. – John Knowles Mr. Tom Arsenault President, Electronic Solutions, BAE Systems Mr. Roy Azevedo Vice President, Advanced Concepts and Technology, Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems Mr. Chris Bernhardt President, ITT Electronic Systems Maj Gen Bruno Berthet Délégation Générale pour l’Armement (DGA), French MOD COL Laurie Buckhout Chief, EW Division, Army Asymmetric Warfare Office, USA Mr. Pierre-Yves Chaltiel Senior Vice President, Solutions for the Government Sector, Thales Aerospace Lt Col Dean Ebert Warfighter Integration, Aviation Weapons Requirements Branch, HQ USMC Col Tim Freeman Commander, 330th Aircraft Sustainment Wing, AFMC, USAF Mr. Gabriele Gambarara General Manager, Elettronica S.p.A.
