Raytheon has announced it is ready to resume work on this critical electronic attack program, under a $279.4 million Next Generation Jammer contract signed in July 2013.
Building off of a strong technology maturation program, Raytheon will complete the preliminary design of the Next Generation Jammer system for the EA-18G Growler advanced electronic attack aircraft. The goal is to deliver game-changing electronic warfare capability to the fleet in a timely manner.
“We commend the GAO’s thorough assessment of this contract award and the U.S. Navy’s re-evaluation that has solidified us as the provider of the world’s Next Generation Jammer program,” said Rick Yuse, president of Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems business. “We look forward to partnering with the Navy to deliver this critical national security capability for the warfighter."
