The US Navy has awarded a contract to Raytheon to develop an advanced electronic attack system known as the next-generation jammer (NGJ).
Under the $42m NGJ contract, Raytheon will replace the ALQ-99 jamming pods and upgrade the US Navy’s EA-18G Growler, F-35 aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.
NGJ will be built with open architecture technology using Raytheon’s airborne radio frequency systems, jamming techniques combat-proven antenna array technology, and sophisticated, solid-state electronics.
In the technology maturation phase, the jammer will be tested to ensure spectral precision, power, reactive speed and directivity.
