NASHUA, N.H. BAE Systems has agreed to a contract under which it will provide Lockheed Martin with additional electronic warfare (EW) systems, retrofit kits, and spares for the F-35 Lightning II aircraft.

The contract adds on to the existing BAE Systems agreement with Lockheed Martin; previous delivery of upwards of 800 AN/ASQ-239 EW/countermeasure systems for the F-35's situational awareness and survivability displays.

The most recent award announcement from BAE Systems describes the AN/ASQ-239 EW system as one that enables advanced offensive and defensive capabilities for the F-35 to engage complex and highly capable threats.
