U.S. Navy Confirms Selection of Raytheon for Next Generation Jammer Electronic Warfare Program
Following the U.S. Navy's confirmation of its Next Generation Jammer contractor, Raytheon has announced it is ready to resume work on this critical electronic attack program.
"We commend the GAO's thorough assessment of this contract award and the U.S. Navy's re-evaluation that has solidified us as the provider of the world's Next Generation Jammer program," said Rick Yuse, president of Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. "We look forward to partnering with the Navy to deliver this critical national security capability for the warfighter."
Building off of a strong technology maturation program, Raytheon will complete the preliminary design of the Next Generation Jammer system for the EA-18G Growler advanced electronic attack aircraft. The goal is to deliver game-changing electronic warfare capability to the fleet in a timely manner.
The U.S. Navy competitively selected Raytheon's Next Generation Jammer offering in July 2013 and awarded the company a $279.4 million contract to conduct the technology development phase of the program.
In November 2013 the Government Accountability Office recommended the U.S. Navy re-evaluate proposals and properly document the evaluation record following a competitor's protest.
