Under this contract, awarded by Robins Air Force Base, Ga., the Oman Air Force will procure 12 airborne integrated defensive electronic warfare suites, as well as spares and support equipment.

The Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare System, or AIDEWS, is an integrated digital radar warning receiver and advanced jamming countermeasures system. It provides pilots with situational awareness and protection against radar-based threats, including modern surface-to-air and air-to-air weapon systems.

“This award continues our support for a key international customer,” said Rich Sorelle, acting president of ITT Exelis Electronic Systems. “This flexible system will ensure that this valuable regional ally will have the needed defensive protection for F-16 aircraft.”

AIDEWS is built upon the proven ALQ-211 family of electronic warfare systems now in use to support a broad range of U.S. and allied defense customers on many aircraft. AIDEWS is currently in full production with more than 160 systems under contract for six nations as part of the F-16 FMS program.

Work will be performed at the Exelis Electronic Systems division in Clifton, N.J.
