Northrop Grumman receives JTE contract

2nd January 2019 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman has received a $450 million, IDIQ contract to deliver Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) systems to the US Air Force.

The JTE Enhanced Delivery Initiative contract includes threat emitter units, mobile and fixed C2 units as well as spares, support equipment, testing and training.

The JTE offers realistic warfighter training and provides a modern, reactive battlespace environment that trains military personnel to identify and counter enemy missile and artillery threats. The robust and ruggedised system can be easily relocated, reactive to aircrew/aircraft for fast-jet, fixed-wing and rotary-wing defensive measures, and can be rapidly reprogrammed with new threat parameters.

Northrop Grumman’s JTE is the current US Air Force programme of record with 28 systems so far fielded both domestically and internationally.
