U.S. Army PROPHET: A $269 Million Signals Intelligence System for Brigade Commanders

by Andrew Dardine, Electronic Systems Analyst, Forecast International.

The U.S. Army’s signals intelligence system equips HMMWVs, MRAPs and other vehicles, providing force protection and situational awareness support to U.S. Army Brigade Combat Team (BCT) and Expeditionary – Military Intelligence Brigade (E-MIB) commanders while enabling effective engagement of enemy forces. The Army will spend $269 million on program procurement and enhancements through 2021.

PROPHET provides situational awareness by electronically mapping radio frequency emitters on the battlefield and providing commanders with communications/radar intercept and direction-finding capabilities.

Currently in development is PROPHET Enhanced. This new version will be equipped with a next-generation, manpack receiver signal-of-interest (SOI).  A notable attribute of the PROPHET Enhanced is its open architecture, a feature that will allow the Army to update the system much faster and more efficiently than possible with older versions of PROPHET.
