Raytheon to Produce Jammers for Air Force

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) a $48.9 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to begin engineering, manufacturing and design (EMD) of its Miniature Air Launched Decoy stand-in jammer variant.

According to Raytheon, “MALD is a state-of-the-art, low-cost, decoy flight vehicle that is modular, air-launched and programmable. It weighs less than 300 pounds and has a range of approximately 500 nautical miles (about 575 statute miles). The MALD-J adds radar-jamming capability to the basic MALD platform without altering the decoy’s outer mold line.”

“During EMD, Raytheon will put MALD-J through an aggressive series of free-flight and captive-carry tests, ” said Scott Muse, Raytheon’s MALD program director. “This is a critical capability for the warfighter, and we intend to meet the required asset available date of 2012.”
