Next Generation Jammer Studied

Northrop Grumman has been awarded a study contract by the U.S. Navy to investigate a Next Generation Jammer to replace its ALQ-99 airborne electronic attack system.

The six-month Next Generation Jammer study, valued at $6 million, is the first major step toward development and production of a modular, scalable jamming system for use on multiple platforms, the company said.

Northrop Grumman currently is delivering Improved Capability (ICAP) III electronic warfare systems for Marine Corps EA-6B Prowlers and a derivative of that system for EA-18G Growlers.
