The Navy awarded a $279.4 million cost-plus-incentive-fee contract July 8 that will transform how the service executes its Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) mission.

The 22-month TD phase is the next step in transitioning mature components into testable subsystems as well as developing a preliminary design for the new jamming pods for the EA-18G Growler AEA aircraft. The Navy’s EA-18G Growler is the DOD’s only tactical AEA platform and supports all services from both aircraft carriers and land bases.

NGJ will replace the ALQ-99 tactical jamming system and will bring increased jamming capability to the warfighter that is critical to sustaining the future missions of the Navy and other services in strike warfare, anti-access/area denial and irregular warfare scenarios. The goal is to deliver this capability to the fleet in fiscal 2020.
