BAE Systems recently received a $41.7 million contract for technology maturation efforts on the U.S. Navy's Next-Generation Jammer, which will replace the ALQ-99 tactical jamming system currently installed on the EA-18G Growler aircraft. Technology maturation efforts include research in support of future development of airborne electronic attack capability from a tactical-size airborne standoff and modified-escort platform, such as the EA-18G. BAE Systems is joined by Cobham, GE Aviation, and Harris Corp. on the contract's technology maturation efforts. The BAE Systems-led effort will combine the companies' expertise in electronic warfare, electronic attack, suppression of enemy air defenses, and irregular warfare support to ground forces.
