CTS completes VIPER demo at US Military’s Cyber Quest

Posted 16 August 2018 · Add Comment

Chemring Technology Solutions (CTS) has completed the successful demonstration of VIPER, the world’s first Electronic Warfare (EW) manpack geo-fencing capability, at this year’s Cyber Quest.



CTS’s participation in the US military’s Cyber Quest exercises followed a competitive down-select after it attended the event for the first time last year.

Led by the US Army’s Cyber Center of Excellence, Cyber Quest is a sequence of advanced technology experiments using EW war gaming. The month long exercises saw operational units participate in a series of experiments to evaluate multiple-vendor systems, and the results will be briefed to coalition partners. The current and future need for EW capability was particularly highlighted by the US Army Cyber Center of Excellence at Fort Gordon.

CTS demonstrated VIPER, its new whole-mission support and information system. When integrated into the RESOLVE EW system, VIPER delivers actionable intelligence and provides operators with pinpoint accuracy for superior target precision, significantly reducing the task, time and reporting burden.

Cyber Quest also successfully experimented with LOCATE-T, the CTS wideband High Frequency Direction Finding (HF DF) tactical system, which is fully-transportable and provides an essential complement to existing static HF sites.

Chesapeake Technology International (CTI) once again provided the core architecture and primary Cyber/Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) operator’s display for the Cyber Quest experiments.  Both LOCATE-T and RESOLVE were interfaced with CTI’s Thunderstorm architecture to help define the common operational picture using the CTI Caper plug-in for RaptorX during the exercises at Fort Gordon.

Ben Vogel, Regional Manager for North and South America, at Chemring Technology Solutions, said: “Cyber Quest supports the evolution of EW systems for US and other militaries worldwide, and provided us with the ideal platform to demonstrate how VIPER delivers a new level of EW capability. VIPER was developed by EW operators for EW operators and the Cyber Quest trials allowed us to engage with end users to show them how we have created the most capable and user-friendly EW manpack system. VIPER’s deployment at Cyber Quest has shown how it offers the next step to counter current and evolving threats.”
