Working with you to advance your Electronic Warfare capability

MASS provides Electronic Warfare Operational Support services and solutions on a global scale, focused across the Land, Air and Maritime domains

Electronic Warfare Operational Support Services

EW systems are growing in diversity and sophistication, with new sensor technologies continually generating large, complex data sets. EW Centres need sophisticated data management applications to transform the information from these increasingly complex sensors into usable intelligence. In the operational domain it is essential that the right intelligence is made available to support decision making in order to provide accurate situational awareness.

THURBON® is an unparalleled EW data management system, providing organisations with a fully integrated suite of tools for the management, processing and storage of complex platform, sensor and weapon system data.

Data management
Training is often overlooked by organisations and viewed as an unnecessary drain on time and resources. However, effective skills-based EW training programmes can significantly improve the performance of your personnel and your organisation. Whether it's designing training to meet a specific requirement or undertaking one of our numerous off-the-shelf courses, MASS can support the development of your personnel which will improve operational effectiveness. Our first-class training programmes can be delivered at our sophisticated UK-based training centre or overseas.

As threat systems increase in complexity and become more prolific, the emphasis on platform protection increases. Working for the UK MoD and other nations, supporting the full Threat Vulnerability Analysis and Countermeasure Development (TVACD) lifecycle, MASS is at the forefront of platform protection, developing countermeasures that enhance the protection and survivability of your platforms.

Countermeasures Development
Modelling & simulation
Traditionally the development of countermeasures has been a costly and lengthy process involving expensive military platforms and personnel conducting trials activities on instrumented threat ranges, often with limited threat systems. Modern modelling and simulation tools can significantly reduce the time and cost in producing effective countermeasures. MASS has combined our software development skills with many years of operational experience and developed a modular suite of tools, CounterWorX, that supports the Threat Vulnerability Analysis and Countermeasure Development (TVACD) lifecycle.

EW Training Courses

An organisation's ability to LEARN, and translate that learning into ACTION rapidly is the ultimate COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE.

(Jack Welch, former General Electric CEO)

Through undertaking Electronic Warfare (EW) courses, designed against your training objectives, you can advance your organisation's EW knowledge and operational capabilities. The MASS Electronic Warfare training courses range from foundation level EW, covering basic principles and applications, to a Masters' degree in science. Many of our courses are accredited by academic institutions including the University of Lincoln.

Training takes place at our dedicated training centre in Lincoln or at a location agreed with you. We use a mix of sophisticated modelling and electronic warfare simulation tools in operationally focused scenarios which support the training delivered in the classroom.

Using instructors with military, science and engineering backgrounds, our EW training courses blend theory with practice to reinforce learning. In achieving your training objectives, we support your students' learning and skills development, accelerating your route to greater operational effectiveness.

CounterWorX - Simulate to survive

Modelling & Simulation

Harnessing unique in-house developed technologies, our experienced specialists have developed a modular suite of modelling and simulation software tools. These tools reduce the cost and time for analysing threat systems, modelling their performance and producing countermeasures or ploys. Our toolset simplifies the reverse engineering of complex weapon systems through using open source information. The threat system analysis, modelling and simulation included in the toolset provide unprecedented technical capability for countermeasure development and engagement simulation across all operational domains.

Known as CounterWorX, this modular suite of software tools can be used individually or collectively to support and enhance electronic warfare countermeasure development.

Our electronic warfare simulation and training tools also support your organisation's training needs. Operationally focused, our toolset reinforces the EW training that is delivered to match your requirements. This training can be completed at our renowned UK training facility, or at a location to suit you using our deployed capabilities.

Networked Electronic Warfare Training Simulator (NEWTS)

NEWTS comprises three core applications: Electronic Warfare Mission Support Tool (EWMST), Communications Exploitation Training Tool (COMETT) and the Signals of Interest (SOI) Repository. All are non-operational, procedural training applications and have been designed to be used over LAN and/or WAN architecture.

They can be used in isolation for individual training, but when combined they replicate a real-life EW operations intelligence cycle fulfilling collective training environments; from the planning and direction of EW assets (EWMST) to the collection and exploitation of communications data (COMETT), the processing, analysis and collation of information (SOI Repository) and the production, dissemination and reporting of intelligence to commanders via EWMST and messaging tools.

NEWTS provides a first class suite of tools that facilitates effective EW training and is used in our training facility, in Lincoln, or can be purchased to facilitate customers' own training delivery requirements. This has been evidenced by the British Army's 11th Signal Regiment who purchased NEWTS in 2017. Colonel Jason Gunning ADC Late R SIGNALS (Royal Corps of Signals, Corps Colonel), commented: "In a time where the information battlespace is becoming contested and congested we must provide our soldiers with the best possible training opportunities to understand the environment they may find themselves employed within. The new Electronic Warfare Simulator will do just that, allowing 11th (Royal School of Signals) Signal Regiment to provide a relevant and realistic training environment that is flexible and meets the evolving demands of the field army. We now look forward to enhancing the military's relationship with industry over the next 5 years through our partnership with MASS".
