Strategic Airborne Operations JV Wins Potential $147M Navy IDIQ to Build Electronic Combat Jet Trainer

The U.S. Navy has awarded Strategic Airborne Operations joint venture a potential four-year, $146.8M contract to provide aircraft intended for air support training in an electronic combat environment.

The company will build the High Endurance EW Jet platform for military aircrew and weapon system operators to learn how to perform electronic attack missions with geographically distributed aviation technology, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

HEEWJ will be equipped with an airborne threat simulation system to support the Pentagon as well as non-DoD and foreign military sales customers.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division received two offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and will obligate funds upon issuance of individual orders.

Contract work will take place at various locations within and outside the continental U.S. through May 2024.
