Electronic Warfare Systems

The Royal Signals provide the Army with its Electronic Warfare (EW) capability.

Electronic Warfare involves finding, exploiting and possibly disrupting the enemy's communications and also provides an element of force protection.

Create the battlefield picture

Intelligence gathering through EW assists the commander in winning the 'information battle' and helps to create the all-important 'battlefield picture'.

14th Signal Regiment (Electronic Warfare) is based in Brawdy, Wales and provides this specialist capability. The Regiment currently uses Odette and SCARUS systems to undertake EW. The Regiment also comprise Light Electronic warfare Teams who work with the Airborne Task Force to provide short notice, highly mobile EW support to the forward elements of the force.


The Odette system provides an electronic support measures (ESM) dimension within the overall EW capability; operating from both armoured and landrover borne variants, Odette electronically finds radio targets.
