Northrop Grumman employee Colleen Guzak inspects a Microwave Power Module (MPM), an integral component in electronic warfare systems such as the ALQ-135 for the F-15 aircraft.

Northrop Grumman recently celebrated the completion of its 2,000th microwave power module,an integral component in radars, jammers and other military electronics.

Microwave power modules are devices that amplify radio frequency signals to high power. These assemblies are critical components in electronic warfare and countermeasure systems such as the AN/ALQ-135 for U.S. and international F-15 aircraft.

The power these modules generate allows systems like the ALQ-135 to defeat electronic threats with strong signals, protecting the aircraft and its crew.

"For 20 years and counting, Northrop Grumman has been manufacturing highly reliable miniaturized microwave power modules that our warfighters depend on in combat," said Janine Nyre, Northrop Grumman's vice president of radio frequency combat information systems.

"Our continued investment has led to microwave power modules that are both smaller and more powerful; enabling systems ready to protect aircrews from the threats of today and tomorrow."

Northrop Grumman's experience in electronic warfare and countermeasures spans decades.

In addition to the ALQ-135, Northrop Grumman has developed a variety of systems such as the AN/ALQ-218 Tactical Jamming Receiver, Falcon Edge Integrated Electronic Warfare Suite and dual mode/dual beam traveling wave tubes for the B-1B bomber.
