Raytheon Wins Contract To Develop Next-Gen Jammer Technology

The EA-18G.

Goleta CA (SPX) Feb 19, 2009
The U.S. Navy has awarded Raytheon Company a $5.5 million contract for a technology maturation study of next-generation jammer capability.

The Next Generation Jammer program will support the Navy's airborne electronic attack requirements by developing innovative ways of tactical jamming against current and future threats from the EA-18G aircraft as the target platform.

Under the contract, Raytheon will use its unique combination of multi-beam jamming techniques and antenna array technology to investigate the effectiveness of alternative next-generation jamming solutions.

"Effective airborne electronic attack requires electromagnetic spectrum dominance in the air and on the ground," said Roy Azevedo, deputy vice president for Raytheon's Tactical Airborne Systems mission area.

"This study will provide a vital foundation for the development of a more robust open-architecture jammer with greater spectral precision, power, reactive speed and directivity. The expected improvements in availability and lower life-cycle costs will ensure a viable future capability for naval electronic warfare."

Work on the study is being done by the company's Space and Airborne Systems business at its Tactical Airborne Systems facility in Goleta, Calif.
