Next Generation Jammer Prototype Powers Through Critical Test

In collaboration with the U.S. Navy, Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) recently completed Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) testing for its Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) array prototypes at the Benefield Anechoic Facility at Edwards Air Force Base, California .

"Raytheon and the Navy developed a realistic testing program designed to ensure that the NGJ electronic warfare system meets its 2021 initial operating capability commitment," said Travis Slocumb , vice president of Electronic Warfare Systems at Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. "Completion of EIRP testing, while an early milestone, confirms our progress to date and that the program is successfully executing to both schedule and plan."

The prototype testing, conducted over a six week period, indicated that the NGJ will fulfill the U.S. Navy's stringent requirements for EIRP, a prime indicator of the system's range and capacity for reaching and affecting multiple targets simultaneously.

The NGJ is built on a combination of high-powered, agile, beam-jamming techniques and cutting-edge solid-state electronics to achieve two goals: meet the U.S. Navy's electronic warfare mission requirements and provide a cost-effective open systems architecture for future upgrades. It is scheduled to replace legacy ALQ-99 tactical jamming pods, delivering new capabilities for the Navy's EA-18G Growler.
