Exelis-Boeing Team Completes Jammer Tech Maturation; Rick Martin Comments

ITT Exelis (NYSE: ITT) and Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) have finished the current technology maturation phase under the Next Generation Jammer program for the U.S. Navy.

The companies said the estimated $2 billion program will replace aging ALQ-99 jamming pods on Boeing’s EA-18G Growler, a Navy electronic attack aircraft.

Exelis will continue developing the jammer’s technology and Boeing will work to integrate the jammer onto the Growler, said Rick Martin, Boeing’s chief engineer for advanced military aircraft.

Exelis said the system will also be compatible with future platforms.

The McLean, Va.-based defense technology firm recently received $54 million to provide digital radio frequency memory-based jamming pods to the Pakistani air force.
