Harris Wins USAF International F-16 EW Support Programme

EW Systems Shields Aircraft from Sophisticated RF Threats

Harris Corporation announced on 22 January that the United States Air Force (USAF) has selected it to provide engineering support services for the electronic warfare (EW) systems onboard international variants of the F-16 FIGHTING FALCON.

Harris will provide software updates and engineering support for its AN/ALQ-211(V)4/8/9 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite (AIDEWS) systems that protect the fleets of F-16s from eight other countries against evolving and increasingly sophisticated electronic threats. The contract will significantly simplify the support model for the AIDEWS, which has already proven its worth over time in the hands of many international operators.

“The Harris AIDEWS system takes sophisticated electronic protection for the multirole F-16 jet to new levels of performance and flexibility,” commented Ed Zoiss, President, Harris Electronic Systems. “The AIDEWS pod system can be easily transferred from one aircraft to another, allowing the wide variety of global F-16 users to distribute EW capabilities among their fleets according to their mission needs.”
