US Navy confirms its selection of Raytheon for Next Generation Jammer Electronic Warfare Program
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the US Navy's confirmation of its Next Generation Jammer contractor, Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) announced today it is ready to resume work on this critical electronic attack program for the warfighter.
"We commend the GAO's thorough assessment of this contract award and the US 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. "Our offer represents the best of Raytheon's innovative capabilities and leadership in advanced next generation AESA-based electronic attack systems and 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 NGJ 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 NGJ 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 US Navy re-evaluate proposals and properly document the evaluation record following a competitor's protest.
