Exelis to Provide F-16 Illuminator
[Avionics Today May 12, 2014] Exelis will provide its Continuous Wave Illuminator (CWI) subsystem for a fleet of F-16 fighter jets, under an $8.4 million follow-on contract from Lockheed Martin.
“Our CWI subsystem provides a real edge, using the power of the electromagnetic spectrum to enable the success and safety of our aviators,” said Joe Rambala, vice president and general manager of the Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems business. “Utilizing its smaller size and lighter weight, the technology performs critical targeting tasks, allowing aviators to devote their attention to the larger mission.”
