October 25, 2023
ARLINGTON, Va. Electronics provider CAES won a contract from the U.S. Navy for production of the AN/ALQ-99 low band consolidation (LBC) transmitter used in electronic-warfare (EW) systems.
The company describes its system as a jammer that fits under an aircraft's wings that helps thwart the efforts of an adversary’s communications and radar systems, designed, built, and tested for use in multiple-octave-frequency bandwidths to cover a wide spectrum range of spectrum.
The airborne electronic-warfare system was originally designed for Navy and Marine Corps vehicles such as the Navy’s EA-6B and EA-18G Growler aircraft.
