USAF picks contractor for EW technology aboard large aircraft.

The Electronic Warfare Contracting Branch of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has awarded L3Harris Technologies a ten-year IDIQ contract worth $947.29 million, to provide modernisation and engineering services associated with the AN/ALQ-172 radar warning receiver.

Work includes block cycle, non-block cycle and engineering sustainment, as well as enhancements for Air Force Global Strike Command, the DoD announced on 31 August.

The AN/ALQ-172 is installed on B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers and the C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft. The system protects these aircraft from radar-guided threats.

Earlier in August, L3Harris was awarded a contract to provide repair services to the USAF for the AN/ALQ-172 radar warning receiver under a $39.73 million sole-source contract.
