BAE, Cobham Partner on U.S. Navy Jammer System

BAE (FTSE: BAE) and Cobham (LON: COB) are teaming up to create a proposal for the U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Jammer system, to replace the ALQ-99 tactical jammer currently installed on the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler aircraft.

The Next Generation Jammer program will look to develop new ways to jam enemy radars, with the EA-18G as the target platform.

The joint product will make use of the firms’ expertise in electronic warfare, electronic attack, suppression of enemy air defenses and irregular warfare support to ground forces.

“Our alliance on the Next Generation Jammer is driven by our shared commitment to provide a flexible solution that fully meets the Navy’s operational needs, ” said Steve Morais, director of attack solutions for BAE Systems. “We bring a disciplined systems engineering and risk-management approach, derived from our combined experience with electronic warfare and electronic attack systems in use today on fifth-generation fighters.”
