Northrop Grumman has received a $46M delivery order from the U.S. Air Force to supply Joint Threat Emitter systems designed to simulate anti-aircraft artillery and surface-to-air missile threats for aircrew training activities.
The order, which falls under a potential $450M contract awarded to Northrop“™s Amherst Systems subsidiary in late 2018, covers eight wideband JTE variants and retrofit kits, the company said Tuesday.
The original indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award includes testing and training support for the mobile electronic warfare threat simulator as well as related equipment to support U.S. and foreign military sales customers.
James Conroy, vice president of land and avionics C4ISR at Northrop, said the system is designed to help aircrew identify and counter adversarial artillery and missile threats.
The company will perform services under the delivery order in Buffalo, N.Y.
