Cobham Delivers 200th Low Band Transmitter to US Navy

Cobham Sensor Systems celebrated a production milestone June 14th, when the company produced its 200th Low Band Transmitter Antenna Group, part of the AN/ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System used on U.S. Navy and Marine Corps EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler aircraft.

“Our employees take pride in delivering products to the servicemen and women who depend on them,” said Jill Kale, vice president of Cobham Sensor Systems. “This milestone is a great example of how the dedication of our employees has translated into a very successful program.”

Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) exercised the second option of the third full-rate production lot of the Low Band Transmitter Antenna Group this past February for nearly $39M. This award brings the total number of production transmitters ordered to 281 of the 315 required transmitters.

The Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group (LBT-AG), developed by Cobham Sensor Systems, has been in production since 2005. The LBT is designed to protect strike aircraft, ships, and ground troops by disrupting enemy radar and communications. It is flown on U.S. Navy EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G aircraft and Marine Corps EA-6B aircraft, and is heavily used in current operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
