Harris Corp. has won $168 million modification contract to exercises an option for the procurement of 78 full-rate production Lot 16 Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures AN/ALQ-214 A(V)4/5 Onboard Jammer systems for the F/A-18C/D/E/F aircraft for the Navy.
In addition, the option provides for the procurement of 16 weapon replacement assembly (WRA) 1A(V)4 receiver/processors and 27 WRA2 A(V)4 modulators. Work is expected to be completed in May 2022, the US Department of Defense said in a statement last Thursday.
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.
The system is designed for both the F/A-18C/D Hornet and the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
