Next Generation Jammer

Description:

The Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) system is intended to replace the ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System (TJS) carried on EA-18G aircraft and improve the Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) capability to address the many diverse and rapidly changing threats on the electronic battlefield.

In addition to providing a significant enhancement in AEA capabilities, the system is needed to mitigate growing ALQ-99 obsolescence and inventory issues. The NGJ mission is to deny, degrade, or deceive an enemy’s ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum by employing both reactive and pre-emptive jamming techniques, while enhancing the friendly force's use of it.

The NGJ system will be employed as a vital component of future carrier air wings and expeditionary Electronic Attack (EA) forces.
