BUFFALO, N.Y. Northrop Grumman Corp. and the U.S. Air Force have signed a $450 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract stipulating that Northrop Grumman will deliver its Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) anti-electronic warfare (EW) training systems to the Air Force.

The JTE is a ruggedized system that trains military personnel to identify and counter enemy missile and artillery threats in a realistic and reactive battlespace-training environment. The system can be used for training on  fast-jet, fixed-wing, and rotary-wing defensive measures, and can be rapidly reprogrammed with new threat parameters.

The Air Force's Life Cycle Management Center will handle the JTE Enhanced Delivery Initiative contract, which includes threat-emitter units, mobile and fixed command-and-control units, plus spares, support equipment, testing, and training.
