Harris Corporation has received a $133 million contract to supply electronic jammers to protect US Navy and Australian F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft against electronic threats, the company announced on 16 October.

The contract will see Harris deliver ALQ-214(V)4/5 Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) jammers for the F/A-18C/D/E/F variants.

The ALQ-214(V)4/5 is an onboard electronic warfare jamming system designed for the US Navy's IDECM programme. It protects aircraft from RF-guided electronic threats, including modern integrated air defence systems.

Deliveres to Australia will take place under the US government's Foreign Military Sales programme.

Deliveries under the order are expected to be completed by May 2020.
