Exelis has won a $88 million contract to manufacture and deliver 48 defensive electronic countermeasures AN/ALQ-214(V)4/5 on-board jammer systems for the US Navy’s F/A-18C/D/EF aircraft.
Work is expected to be completed in December 2018, US DoD said in a statement Friday.
The ALQ-214 is the next generation integrated countermeasures system carried by the U.S. Navy F/A-18 Carrier-based aircraft. It has also been delivered to the Royal Australian Air Force for its F/A-18 aircraft.
The system blends sensitive receivers and active countermeasures to form an electronic shield for the U.S. Navy and RAAF F/A-18 fighter aircraft. The RF countermeasure system responds to threats autonomously with a specific series of measures designed to protect the aircraft from detection and engages any fired threats to the aircraft, to ensure mission success.
