Cobham Wins Contract from Navy

Cobham has been awarded a development contract by the Navy, that could be worth up to $11.5 million.
 
Cobham will develop and implement a replacement for the existing TWT-based RF (Radio Frequency) chain in the ALQ-99 Band 5/6 transmitter with a solid state amplifier module and DC-DC converter.
 
“The ALQ-99 is a vital part of the suite carried by US Navy EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler aircraft to jam and suppress hostile radars and radar guided weapons, ” said Steve Schaefer, president of Cobham Sensor Systems.
 
The first phase of the standard four-option contract will be to provide a risk-reduction approach that will provide a feasible and fiscally-sensible solution.
 
“The TRMA program replaces older technology with new for enhanced reliability and ease of maintenance, ” said Schaefer.  “This award demonstrates the strength of Cobham’s continuing relationship with the Navy as a highly respected supplier for ALQ-99 transmitters and Airborne Electronic Attack transmitter technologies.”
