Raytheon Co., El Segundo, California, is being awarded a $1,012,928,257 cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for the design, manufacture, integration, demonstration and test of 15 Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) engineering development model pods in support of the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the NGJ program. The NGJ system is a pod-based tactical jammer that replaces the 40-plus-year ALQ-99 jammer system on the EA-18G aircraft. This contract also provides for the manufacture of 14 NGJ aero-mechanical test pods, which will be used to verify aircraft flying qualities and pod safe separation from the host aircraft; provide equipment needed for system integration laboratories; and mature
The Boeing Co., St. Louis, Missouri, is being awarded a $19,900,000 cost reimbursement contract to provide for the preliminary work associated with the engineering change proposal 6472 integration of the Next Generation Jammer Pod onto the EA-18G aircraft. This effort will ensure the development, preparation and delivery of the aircraft modification design is suitable for the engineering and manufacturing development stage of the Next Generation Jammer Pod program. Work will be performed in St.
Exelis Inc., Clifton, New Jersey, a wholly owned subsidiary of Harris Corp., is being awarded a $97,303,380 cost-plus-fixed-fee, fixed-price-incentive-firm contract for the manufacture and delivery of 46 full-rate production Lot XII integrated defensive electronic countermeasures AN/ALQ-214(V)4/5 onboard jammer systems. This effort also includes the repair of test assets and field support for the AN/ALQ-214(V)4/5. Work will be performed in Clifton, New Jersey (31 percent); San Jose, California (26 percent); San Diego (11 percent); Rancho Cordova, California (5 percent); Mountain View, California (4 percent); Hudson, New Hampshire (2 percent); and various locations within the U.S.
