The U.S. Navy (USN) awarded Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems a USD1 billion sole source contract for Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) for Increment 1 of the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) system, the electronic attack technology that combines high-powered, agile, beam-jamming techniques with cutting-edge, solid-state electronics.

The U.S. company will deliver 15 Engineering Development Model pods for mission systems testing and qualification, and 14 aeromechanical pods for airworthiness certification. The NGJ contract also covers designing and delivering simulators and prime hardware to government labs and support for flight testing and government system integration.

The U.S. Navy completed Milestone B for the program, allowing NGJ to move to the EMD phase.
