Raytheon Performing Structural Design Work on the Navy's Next Generation Jammer
Raytheon Co., El Segundo, California, was awarded $25,160,073 for a modification to a previously awarded cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for development of the Next Generation Jammer, Mid-Band, known as the AN/ALQ-249. The modification gives the Navy additional structural analysis and structural design efforts in support of the engineering and manufacturing development of the AN/ALQ-249, including static and fatigue requirements. Work will be performed in El Segundo (52 percent); Dallas, Texas (47 percent); and Ft. Wayne, Indiana (1 percent), and is expected to be completed in September 2018. Fiscal year 2018 research, development, test and evaluation (Navy) funds in the amount of $25,160,073 will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity. The AN/ALQ-249 is an upgrade of the Navy's legacy jammer used on the EA-18G Growler.
