Ex­elis de­liv­ers elec­tronic war­fare tech­nol­ogy for US Navy F/A-18 Air­craft

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

Ex­elis has suc­cess­fully de­liv­ered to the US Navy the first nine full rate pro­duc­tion, next-gen­er­a­tion elec­tronic self­pro­tec­tion sys­tems for F/A-18 fighter air­craft. The ALQ-214(V)4/5 is the lat­est vari­ant of the on­board jam­mer sub­sys­tem in the in­te­grated de­fen­sive elec­tronic coun­ter­mea­sures (IDECM) suite.

Through a se­ries of en­hance­ments, in­clud­ing minia­tur­i­sa­tion and im­proved elec­tron­ics pack­ag­ing, the ALQ-214(V)4/5 can be in­stalled on F/A-18E/F Su­per Hor­nets as well as – for the first time – on F/A18C/D Hor­nets. This will help en­sure that both types of air­craft and their crews are pro­tected from mod­ern, dy­namic ra­dio fre­quency threats.
