Exelis delivered nine next generation electronic self-protection systems of Super Hornet fighter aircraft to the U.S. Navy.
The ALQ-214(V) 4/5 is the latest variant of the onboard jammer subsystem in the Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) suite.
The ALQ-214(V) 4/5 can be installed on F/A-18E/F Super Hornets as well as - for the first time - on F/A-18C/D Hornets. This will help ensure that both types of aircraft and their crews are protected from modern, dynamic radio frequency threats.
"With reduced size and weight, our system ensures that naval aviators stay ahead of emerging electronic threats," said Joe Rambala, vice president and general manager of the Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems.
