ITT Exelis completes technology maturation phase of US Jammer programme
ITT Exelis (XLS) has successfully completed the 33-month technology maturation phase of the US Navy’s nextgeneration Jammer (NGJ) programme. Installed on the US Navy’s EA-18G electronic attack aircraft, the Jammer will allow US forces to defeat integrated air defence systems and disable an enemy’s electronic communications, command and control capabilities.
“The NGJ will provide US and allied fighting forces with the tool they need to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum on even the most advanced battlefield,” said Rich Sorelle, President of Exelis Electronic Systems. “During the past 33 months, Exelis has worked closely with the US Navy to ensure our technology is ready for the next stage of this important programme.”
During the course of the technology maturation phase, Exelis successfully designed, developed and tested a number of subsystems critical to the next-generation Jammer.
