Raytheon has won a $12 million contract for engineering and test support services for the ALQ-249 Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) currently in development for the Navy EA-18G aircraft.
Services to be provided include software support for NGJ pod and integration, including requirements analysis, design, development, integration, testing, training, and tools related to and in support of ALQ-249 and advanced electronic warfare initiatives, US Department of defense said in a statement Wednesday.
Raytheon’s ALQ-249, Next Generation Jammer Mid-band was selected by the US Navy in 2013 to replace the legacy ALQ-99 systems used on the EA-18G airborne electronic attack aircraft. In 2016, the Navy awarded Raytheon a $1B Next Generation Jammer Engineering and Manufacturing Development contract. The company’s NGJ solution will provide airborne electronic attack and jamming capabilities.
Work is expected to be completed in March 2024.
