Northrop Grumman – Aerospace Systems has awarded BAE Systems a contract to provide Electronic Support Measure (ESM) systems for use on all 20 B-2 Spirit bombers, marking BAE Systems’ presence on all three of the U.S. Air Force’s Low Observable platforms; the F-22, F-35 and B-2 aircraft. BAE Systems was selected after a competitive bid process over the incumbent and industry’s top Electronic Warfare providers, to replace the aircraft’s 30-year-old legacy AN/APR-50 ESM system. “As the provider of similar capability on 5th generation fighter aircraft, BAE Systems is well suited to modernize the ESM capabilities of the B-2 fleet,” said Brian Walters, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Electronic Combat Solutions business. Known as the “Stealth Bomber”, the B-2 is the premier deep-threat strike aircraft designed to penetrate dense anti-aircraft defenses and deploy conventional and nuclear weapons.
