Morocco orders AIDEWS systems
Harris Corporation will supply AN/ALQ-211 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite (AIDEWS) systems to the Royal Moroccan Air Force (RMAF) under a $91 million IDIQ contract announced on 10 January. The contract was awarded by Warner Robins Air Logistics Center.
Harris will deliver AIDEWS systems, spares, support equipment and services under the contract. The system will provide integrated radar warning, RF countermeasures and advanced stand-alone radar warning to help protect the RMAF's F-16 fleet against current and evolving electronic threats.
Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems, said: 'AIDEWS’ integrated radar warning and RF countermeasures defend against modern sophisticated electronic threats. Harris is committed to rapidly fielding this proven capability to support the RMAF’s pilots and enable their mission.'
