CAES Awarded Contract to Provide US Navy with AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Consolidation Transmitters

CAES, a leading provider of mission-critical advanced RF technology, has been awarded a contract from the US Navy for the initial pre-production phase of the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Consolidation (LBC) transmitter. The LBC is a modification to the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter.

“We are proud to support the US Navy with our engineering and manufacturing expertise to deliver high-performance advanced RF technologies,” said Mike Kahn, president and CEO, CAES. “We have been investing to advance the system capabilities and SWaP for these applications and are excited to see it in use.”

Having delivered more than 850 jammers across the last several decades, CAES continues to deliver products at the forefront of US Navy and Royal Australian Air Forces’ (RAAF) EA-18G operations worldwide. CAES transmitters are designed, built and tested to provide high power across multiple octave bandwidths, which allows them to withstand the demanding and severe environment of maritime, Tactical Aviation (TACAIR) aircraft operating from US Navy Aircraft Carriers. They also provide high reliability with low maintenance costs.
