Report: Raytheon Keeps Navy Growler Jammer Tech Contract Win

GrowlerThe U.S. Navy has retained Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) as the prime contractor for electronic jammer technology on the branch’s Growler EA-18G aircraft, Forbes reported Friday.

Loren Thompson writes the Navy handed down the decision Friday and is slated to hold a debriefing meeting on the Next-Generation Jammer program within this week.

Raytheon’s team won the competition in July to build jamming pods that work to defend Growler against radar-guided threats across an electromagnetic spectrum, Thompson reports.

Airborne jammers are designed to disrupt adversaries’ sensing and communications activities and remotely disable improvised bombs in the battlefield, according to Thompson.
