  • Upgraded CEMA database management system enables operators and key decision makers to view the full electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) picture, gain information dominance and achieve operational advantage

13 MAY 2024: MASS has launched THURBON CEMA, a new centralised cyber electromagnetic activity (CEMA) database management system that brings CEMA data together in one place to improve battlespace spectrum management.

THURBON CEMA is the first system of its kind, enabling users to manage CEMA data in land, air and maritime domains operating in multi-threat environments. This force multiplier will support the synchronisation and co-ordination of offensive, defensive, inform and enabling activities, across the electromagnetic environment and cyberspace.

Michael Swift, Business Development Director at MASS, said: “The EMS is constantly evolving, thanks to technological advances and the continued efforts of adversary forces. In this context, simplicity for operators is key and by reducing the reliance on multiple data sources and bringing all CEMA activity into one database, THURBON CEMA will enable quicker decision-making. Through our work with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and other partners, MASS has led the way in electronic warfare (EW) and CEMA management and we’re delighted that THURBON CEMA is the next step in improving battlespace spectrum management.”

The upgraded database management system allows users to achieve information dominance with a single source of accurate, near real-time intelligence across the full EMS. THURBON CEMA takes advantage of new, richer multi-threat data to feed its common operating picture.

Designed and programmed by MASS EW and CEMA software development experts, THURBON CEMA includes a modern user interface to provide clear, accurate spectrum visualisation to inform and improve battlespace management.

THURBON CEMA is an upgraded version of MASS’ world-leading EW database management system, THURBON, which has been used and trusted by the UK MoD for over 10 years.
