The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

4 Nov. 2021 -- The Army in September awarded $9.6 million to Lockheed Martin to equip several Stryker armored vehicles with an EW system combining cyber warfare, signals intelligence (SIGINT) and electronic attack.

The electronic warfare Stryker is designated the Terrestrial Layer Systems-BCT because it will have the mobility and armor protection to accompany on the ground mechanized brigade combat team at the forefront of the fighting.

TLS-BCT armored combat vehicle has an open-systems C5ISR/EW Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS) vetronics architecture. Lockheed Martin’s concept art for the Stryker BCT-TLS shows three large dome antennae on the vehicle’s center and rear hull, as well as side hull-mounted sensors.
