The Army will host briefings for industry next month on a new system that combines signals intelligence, electronic warfare, and offensive cyber into a single device.

An industry day for the Terrestrial Layer System is scheduled for Jan. 23 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, according to a Dec. 7 notice posted on Federal Business Opportunities. There will be both unclassified and top secret briefings.

TLS will be a modular kit that can run all three operations inside of a single vehicle.

The program is set to start sometime in fiscal year 2020 while FY-19 will be a “campaign of learning,” Col. Kevin Finch, project manager EW and cyber, told Inside Defense in October.
