The vehicles have been shipped to General Dynamics Mission Systems in Scottsdale, AZ where they will be outfitted with the TEWL system and shipped directly to U.S. Army airborne units.

The new systems, which will be integrated into A-GMVs, would allow for sensing, signals intelligence, electronic warfare and RF-enabled cyberattacks.

General Dynamics’s TEWL is a dedicated all-weather, 24-hour, ground tactical electronic support and electronic attack system that provides the Commander with options to create multiple dilemmas to a designing enemy by decreasing the sensor to shooter timeline. TEWL will enable to detect, locate, identify the enemy and will give the Commander the capability to act/react/counter with non-lethal effects by denying, disrupting, and degrading the enemy’s ability to communicate, coordinate, and synchronize.
