Boeing delivers 100th Ship’s Signal Exploitation Equipment System

Boeing has delivered the 100th Ship’s Signal Exploitation Equipment system to the U.S. Navy, marking a milestone in the service’s ability to receive and process information vital to executing its missions.

This delivery is part of an ongoing effort to meet the current contractual obligation of 113 systems, with more production expected in the future as modifications are made to the system.

The SSEE system, made by Boeing subsidiary Argon ST, assesses and analyzes signals intelligence data efficiently, allowing Navy warfighters to make informed decisions quickly and decisively.

“This system provides reliable, innovative capabilities that supply intelligence information that warfighters can act upon quickly,” said Chris Devine, director of Argon ST’s Maritime Solutions.

SSEE is a cryptologic system that performs real-time signals intelligence analysis and provides precise geo-location across a range of targets. It is used on board Navy ships and performs all processing functions necessary to acquire, identify, locate and analyze signals. It also includes a subsystem that performs mission management and analysis.

“For more than a decade, SSEE systems have delivered critical information to our warfighters so they can more effectively execute their missions,” said Chris Parente,  Principal APM, Information Operations, PEO C4I.

The systems are expected to remain in service for as long as 20 years. Argon ST will provide software and hardware upgrades over that time.
