Harris Corporation has won a $97 million order to provide the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) with self-protection jammers for the integrated defensive electronic countermeasures (IDECM) program.
The order was received during the fourth quarter of Harris’ fiscal 2015, the company announced Thursday.
Harris will provide its ALQ-214 radio frequency integrated countermeasure system, which is already used by the Navy to protect carrier-based F/A-18s, including both Hornets and Super Hornets, from sophisticated RF threats such as hostile radars and air defense systems.
“The ALQ-214 is one of the most capable airborne jamming systems ever built,” Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems announced Thursday.
“In the complex, contested battle spaces our aviators face, it is a critical element of their ability to outpace evolving electronic threats and maintain a strategic edge.” Zoiss added.
Harris has supported the IDECM program for 18 years, continually improving the ALQ-214’s capabilities to address the evolving airborne electronic warfare threat landscape.
Under the latest order, Harris will begin producing the twelfth full-rate production lot of the system, with an option for the thirteenth lot to be exercised in 2016.
The 46 systems plus spare weapons replaceable assemblies will equip new aircraft as well as modernize the existing fleet. The order also includes field support and assembly repairs.
