This contract covers 18 Raytheon-made Advanced Countermeasure Electronic Systems for a batch of F-16 jets Iraq ordered earlier this year under a $830 million foreign military sales transaction, Raytheon said Tuesday.
Lockheed also selected the ACES for a group of F-16s Iraq ordered in 2012.
Mark Kula, Raytheon vice president of tactical airborne systems, said the company designed the technology to identify, locate and respond to potential threats before they engage.
Kula added ACES is built to function as electronic warfare self-defense technology in tactical fighter environments and missions.
Raytheon’s ACES contains a radar warning receiver, digital jammer and chaff-flare dispenser.
