Raytheon receives next-gen jammer SDTA order
Raytheon will provide additional System Demonstration Test Articles (SDTA) for the Next Generation Jammer Mid-Band programme, the US Department of Defense announced on 25 November.
The company has received a $403.3 million modification to a previously awarded contract for the work from the US Naval Air Systems Command.
This modification increases the scope of the contract to procure an additional seven SDTA shipsets, 60 SDTA pod subsystems, 27 pieces of peculiar support equipment, one fatigue test pod and one static test pod in support of the initial operational test and evaluation phase of the Next Generation Jammer Mid-Band Program.
Work will be complete in December 2022.
