The article informs that certain U.S. agencies will hold a critical design review for an advanced development model of a multi-function electronic warfare system (MFEW). The U.S. Office of Naval Research, Naval Research Laboratory, the Program Executive Office for Integrated Warfare Systems, and Northrop Grumman Electronics Systems Sector will hold a critical design review in May for MFEW that the Navy plans to field on board the DD(X) next-generation destroyers. MFEW represents the electronic-warfare component of a proposed Integrated Digital Arrays and Radar Innovative Naval Prototype initiative, managed by Office of Naval Research's Information, Electronics, and Surveillance Department.
