US Army tests another phase of SIGINT system


LAKEHURST (BNS): The US Army has completed another phase of testing of the Common Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) System 1500 (CSS-1500) validating several key functions of the system.

The CSS-1500 is Northrop Grumman's next generation of small scale lightweight SIGINT payloads and is a segment of the company's Airborne SIGINT Product Line (APL).

The test which included instantaneous geolocation, Irregular Warfare (IW) signal exploitation, and SIGINT battle space situational awareness was conducted to gather data on the capability of the payload and enable data analysis against other payloads.

Trip Carter, director of Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (AISR) for Northrop Grumman said, "The test validated the CSS-1500's Instantaneous Geolocation Arrow capability, which allows the sensor to locate targets with a high degree of accuracy in a matter of seconds."

"This capability will bring our troops vital information about the enemies they are facing today and enable better utilization of other assets, such as full-motion video. This is a game-changing technology that surpasses currently-fielded or even planned SIGINT systems, “he said.
