09:01 EDTXLSExelis wins interim redesign contract worth $15.3M for Navy's tactical jammer
Exelis has received a U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center contract valued at $15.3M to perform essential sustainment work on the ALQ-99 tactical jamming system. The ALQ-99 is used on the Navyís EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft. The technology will also be provided to the Australian government through a Foreign Military Sales program, the first time the ALQ-99 has been made available to an international ally. Under the contract, Exelis will redesign three modules -- components of the ALQ-99ís universal exciter upgrade shop-replaceable assembly -- to extend the service life of the Navyís principal standoff jammer. As part of the redesign, Exelis will replace legacy application-specific electronic components with modern field-programmable technology, enhancing reliability and the systemís ability to adapt to changing mission needs. The work will also include extensive qualification testing to ensure that the aircraft can operate successfully in challenging environments.
