L3Harris Wins USN Next-Gen Jammer Contract

Five-Year $496 Million Contract for Prototype and Test Deliveries

The US Navy has awarded L3Harris Technologies a $496 million (€406 million), five-year contract for prototype tactical jamming pods destined to extend US air superiority.

The Next-Generation Jammer Low Band (NGJ-LB) is a high-powered, high-capacity airborne EW system that provides extended stand-off jamming capability, covers a broad spectrum and processes an increased number of threats. The system operates seamlessly with joint and allied forces, and provides growth capacity for emerging threats.

The [NGJ-LB] contract highlights L3Harris’ long-standing commitment to support the US Navy’s mission to maintain superiority on land, sea and in the air,” commented Dana Mehnert, President, Communication Systems Segment, L3Harris. “The selection of L3Harris demonstrates our company’s strength as a technology prime to provide a truly unique solution that meets the Navy’s need to address all contested environments.”

The company will deliver eight operational pods to NAVAIR for fleet assessment, and additional test assets for airworthiness and design verification. The NGJ-LB pods will be flown on the EA-18G GROWLER and continue the Navy’s plan to address operational gaps and replace the aging ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System pods operating in the low frequency spectrum.
