Northrop Grumman Joint Threat Emitter Deployed to Exercise Joint Warrior

Key Component of Training for F-35B Aircrew

Northrop Grumman’s Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) was recently deployed during Exercise Joint Warrior in the UK, supporting RAF, RN and USMC F-35B aircrew training.

JTE is a mobile air defence RE threat simulator that provides an environment designed to help train military personnel to identify enemy missile or artillery threats. During the exercise, JTE provided electronic range simulation training capabilities.

Warfighters need realistic training and it’s particularly important to the UK, and its allies, as they bring the F-35 LIGHTNING II into service,” said Andy Horler, Director, Business Development at Northrop Grumman. “Our Joint Threat Emitter offers a high level of preparation for aircrews as they train to combat various threats.”

Exercise Joint Warrior – the largest military exercise in Europe – brings together all branches of Britain’s armed forces, combining with NATO and other allied forces and incorporating 58 aircraft and 16 warships from 14 allied nations. Going head to head against the JTE simulation is a key component of the F-35B aircrews’ training, ahead of their deployment as part of the UK Carrier Strike Group in 2021.
