Boeing, Northrop Grumman Partner

By Tish Drake | October 26, 2007

Boeing and Northrop Grumman are partnering to develop a new airborne electronic attack capability for U.S. Air Force B-52H aircraft. The companies say the proposed B-52H Core Component Jammer (CCJ) program will provide long-range radar jamming capabilities, making in-theater air support safer and more effective. The Air Force is currently examining its airborne electronic attack needs, and has not yet issued a request for proposals. The CCJ capability will be added to the multi-mission-capable B-52H. If selected, modification work will be completed at Boeing's Support Systems facility in Wichita, Kan., and at Northrop Grumman's facility in Bethpage, N.Y.
