The notion of a swarm of UAVs controlled by a single operator is not exclusive to the LEWK
ACTD, though, and not even to the US military.
The idea of developing LEWK came about after the 1999 air war over Kosovo, where NATO air strikes often were hampered by the presence of Serbian surface-to-air missile sites.
LEWK is funded under the Pentagon's advanced concept technology demonstration program, designed to expedite the development of militarily-useful technologies.
The goal is to "integrate them smartly." To keep the cost down, he added, LEWK only would provide an "80-85 percent solution" to fulfill the so-called SEAD mission, or suppression of enemy air defenses.
The "Loitering EW Killer (LEWK
) ACTD" will be presented by M.
Bonus: Changing your lewk
will cultivate killer confidence and make you feel like the queen you already are.
Our speaker in October was Dwight Early (Aeronautical Systems Center) who is the Air Force Transition Program Manager for the "Loitering EW Killer" (LEWK
), an Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD).
Our speaker was Dwight Early (ASC/FBX), and the subject was a program called 'LEWK
' (Low-cost EW Killer).
Tiny tweaks can make last summer's shorts feel of-the-moment--and totally customized to your current lewk
. Let's get your sew on!
