L3Harris Technologies is to demonstrate a new electronic warfare (EW) solution prototype for the US Air Force F-16 fighter, the company announced on 14 November.

The project has been awarded under a SOSSEC Consortium Air Force Open System Acquisition Initiative Other Transaction Agreement.

As part of the Alpha Phase of the air force’s F-16 EW Suite Program Prototype Project, L3Harris will develop and test an integrated digital radar warning receiver electronic countermeasures solution based on the company’s combat-proven technologies.

Ed Zoiss, president, Space and Airborne Systems, L3Harris, said: ‘L3Harris is delivering an integrated EW suite based on the proven technologies from across the newly-merged companies that will provide F-16 pilots with the most sophisticated, high-performance EW needed to defeat advanced and emerging threats.

‘We’re leveraging technology synergies and innovations from across the company as a result of the merger, perhaps none more exciting and game-changing for our customers than in the area of EW and spectrum dominance.’

L3Harris airborne EW systems support and enable missions for strategic bombers, tactical fighters and rotary aircraft by helping aviators to detect, avoid, and where necessary, defeat electronic threats at every level of engagement.
