Northrop Grumman to EW Suite Prototype for USAF F-16

Northrop Grumman to EW Suite Prototype for USAF F-16

US Air Force has selected Northrop Grumman, via the SOSSEC Consortium, to demonstrate prototype systems to protect the F-16 fleet against radio frequency threats.

Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) has been selected by the U.S. Air Force for a prototype project to demonstrate an internally mounted electronic warfare suite and digital radar warning receiver for the F-16 fighter aircraft. The agreement was issued under SOSSEC Consortium’s Air Force Open System Acquisition Initiative (OSAI) Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) for prototyping.

“Providing advanced electronic warfare capabilities to the F-16 community is critically important to the future survivability of the platform, especially as the electromagnetic spectrum becomes increasingly contested,” said Brent Toland, vice president, land and avionics C4ISR, Northrop Grumman. “Our system builds on our long experience with the F-16 and other military aircraft to provide the warfighter with the ability to operate seamlessly against the threats that are continuing to grow in sophistication.”

The goal of the prototype project is to provide spherical radar warning, threat identification and countermeasure capabilities to protect aircrews from modern electromagnetic spectrum threats. Northrop Grumman’s prototype solution builds upon the company’s advanced electronic warfare system architecture that is in production for multiple programs, offering protection from current and emerging threats and a growth path to even greater self-protection capabilities.

Northrop Grumman has teamed with non-traditional defense contractors for the execution of this OTA prototype project.

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in autonomous systems, cyber, C4ISR, space, strike, and logistics and modernization to customers worldwide.
