Lockheed Martin will provide system integration services for ASQ-239 EW countermeasure hardware.

Lockheed Martin has obtained a $584 million cost-plus-incentive-fee modification contract from Naval Air Systems Command.

The modification aims to add scope to provide system integration engineering for the development of new ASQ-239 EW countermeasure hardware in support of the F-35 aircraft for the USAF, USMC, USN and non-DoD users of the system.

The work is expected to be completed by April 2026. 

The AN/ASQ-239 (manufactured by BAE Systems) extends detection ranges and provides radar protection, as well as providing the F-35 pilot with evasion, engagement, countermeasure and jamming options. 

BAE Systems has been the EW supplier for the F-35 programme since 2005.
