Harris Corp. has received a $97 million order to provide the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command with self protection jammers for the integrated defensive electronic countermeasures (IDECM) program. The order was received during the fourth quarter of Harris' fiscal 2015.
Harris will provide its ALQ-214 radio frequency integrated countermeasure system, which is already used by the Navy to protect carrier-based F/A-18s, including both Hornets and Super Hornets, from sophisticated RF threats such as hostile radars and air defense systems.
"The ALQ-214 is one of the most capable airborne jamming systems ever built," said Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems. "In the complex, contested battlespaces our aviators face, it is a critical element of their ability to outpace evolving electronic threats and maintain a strategic edge."
