Lockheed Martin and Cobham have partnered for the US Navy's Next Generation Jammer Low Band (NGJ-LB) competition, Lockheed announced on 10 April.

The new system will replace the navy's ALQ-99 tactical jamming system onboard the E/A-18 Growler aircraft.

The NGJ-LB system will provide greater electronic attack capabilities in the lower frequency bands of the electromagnetic spectrum against modern threats. 

Jim Barber, senior VP of Cobham integrated electronic solutions, a business unit of Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions, said: ‘Cobham has continued to invest in state-of-the-art, next generation airborne electronic attack transmitter capabilities for the EA-18G community and looks forward to continuing to deliver reliable and scalable solutions well into the future.

‘Our strong partnership with Lockheed Martin on programmes such as AOEW and the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program Block 2, along with our collective capabilities and heritage with the EW community will provide the best value for the US Navy.’
