More Northrop Grumman EW pods for USAF
Northrop Grumman will provide advanced electronic warfare pods to the US Air Force under a $44 million order announced on 30 July.
The order was placed under the company’s existing contract for the air force’s Electronic Attack Pod Upgrade Program (EAPUP).
The EAPUP is an upgraded, digital AN/ALQ-131 pod that will replace the air force’s current electronic attack pods.
The system’s capabilities have been rigorously tested in trials representative of modern combat scenarios involving multiple, simultaneous threats. The pod demonstrated the ability to identify, locate and counter sophisticated threats and keep aircrews safe during missions in contested airspace.
Brent Toland, vice president, land and avionics C4ISR, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘The advanced electronic warfare capability integrated in EAPUP is mature, scalable and in production today. Available globally, it is ready to give aircrews the protection they need in dense electromagnetic spectrum environments.’
