The US Navy has confirmed that Raytheon Co. will be completing the preliminary design of its Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) system for the EA-18G Growler advanced electronic attack aircraft. The NGJ adds up-to-date electronic-warfare (EW) capability to the Navy’s fighting force. The work is based on a previous Naval award for $279.4 million to conduct the technology development phase of the program. The Navy was advised in November 2013 by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to re-evaluate properly document the proposal following a protect by a competitor.

Rick Yuse, president of Raytheon’s Space and Airborne Systems business, notes:  “Our offer represents the best of Raytheon’s innovative capabilities and leadership in advanced next generation AESA-based electronic attack systems, and we look forward to partnering with the Navy to deliver this critical national security capability for the warfighter.”
