With the emergence of Anti Access/Area Denial(A2/AD), integrated air defense networks have become very complex and difficult to counter. Moreover, in today’s world of stealth and low observable aircraft, EW systems need to be sensitive enough to detect and engage targets before they are visually seen. Additionally, the development of new missile-seeker technologies for surface-to-air missiles poses a serious threat to aircraft as they bypass existing EW systems. There is an increased focus on EW systems, due to the emergence of Next Generation Jammers and AESA that are being explored for EW equipment. These technologies allow the generation of complex jamming waveforms, in addition to being modular enough to be installed on platforms as per operational requirements.

There is also a shift to integrated EW solutions, with advanced signal processing, and miniaturization, with complex and powerful digital wideband receivers, which are able to instantaneously process GHz of signals in complex spectrum environments. There is an increasing need for a distributed, adaptable network electronic warfare capability to facilitate the integration of several EW technologies on both manned and unmanned aircraft. This will enable a complete horizontal integration of multiple payloads, leading to increased situational awareness. At present, EW payloads are bulky with huge power requirements, making integration on unmanned systems restrictive. EW is no longer limited to peer and near-peer opponents due to the ease of availability to small nation states as well as non-state actors. There is a growing need to integrate CW with EW to have a combined armed effect and gain control over the EM spectrum. EW and CW enable each other due to the shared spectrum.
