Dynetics' threat system expertise supports warfighter

Scientific and technical intelligence (S&TI) is increasingly critical to our nation's protection. For almost 40 years, Dynetics has supported the Intelligence Community by performing expert assessments of foreign technology and foreign weapon systems to characterize and quantify threat system capabilities, vulnerabilities, and limitations.

Dynetics' exceptional threat system expertise gained through these S&TI analyses provides crucial insight to U.S. weapon system developers and evaluators and supports the warfighter. Our experts are skilled in processing and analyzing all types of intelligence data, including electronic intelligence (ELINT), foreign instrumentation signals intelligence (FISINT), human intelligence (HUMINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT), measurement and signatures intelligence (MASINT), and open source intelligence (OSINT).

Our experts perform foreign materiel exploitation (FME) of weapon systems and components, including both hardware and software. To thoroughly understand the capabilities of foreign weapon systems, we routinely develop detailed models and simulations of systems, subsystems, and components.

Dynetics has analyzed the following systems:

  • Ground-based, shipborne, and airborne radar systems
  • Guided missiles and rockets
  • Electronic warfare (EW) systems such as jammers, warning receivers, and defensive avionics suites
  • Command, control, communication, and computer (C4) systems
  • Active protection systems for armored vehicles
