Cobham has received a $37 million contract to produce an additional 51 Low Band Transmitter/Antenna Groups (LBT/AG) and spare parts for the U.S. Navy to be manufactured at the Cobham Defense Systems facility in Lansdale, PA, and brings the total number of ship sets ordered to 120. This business unit was acquired by Cobham from BAE North America in February. The LBT system is designed to protect strike aircraft, ships, and ground troops by disrupting enemy radar and communications signals.  It is currently being employed on U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Grumman EA-6B aircraft and will soon transition to the Navy’s newest Airborne Electronic Attack platform, the EA-18G Growler.
