Pacific Defense has been awarded a contract to supply its SX-3000 systems to support the US Marine Corps MEGFoS static site system evaluation project.
Currently in development, the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Electronic Warfare Ground Family of Systems (MEGFoS) is a family of electronic warfare systems that includes fixed sites, and mounted and dismounted variants.
According to Pacific Defense, MEGFoS will use the electromagnetic spectrum to find and identify adversary forces while also providing friendly forces feedback on their signature management operations.
The system will be used primarily for countering improvised explosive devices and unmanned aerial surveillance threats, and for providing limited counter communications capabilities.
The SX-3000 systems are aligned with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Technical Standard and is in alignment with Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS).
Both SOSA and CMOSS standards are employed by the US Department of Defense (DoD) on various Programs of Record.
The latest contract award marks the culmination of Pacific Defense’s multi-year effort to mature its SX-3000 system as per the technical standards of CMOSS and SOSA for US DoD customers and prime contractors. The SOSA-aligned systems will enable use of common technologies across multiple platforms, enabling reuse and rapid adaptation to a range of customers and mission needs in all domains.
“Pacific Defense is at the forefront of advanced multi-platform, multi-INT mission solutions fully aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard in support of the US DoD MOSA Mandate memo,” said Dr. Niraj Srivastava, VP at Pacific Defense.
