ALQ-231 Intrepid Tiger Pod


ALQ-231 (V) Intrepid Tiger II (IT II) is a precision, on-demand, external and internal carriage electronic warfare (EW) weapon system designed to provide Marine Corps fixed and rotary wing aircraft with an organic, distributed, and networked airborne EW capability that can be controlled from the cockpit or by a ground operator.

Its open architecture design and rapid re-programmability give IT II the flexibility and adaptability to meet current and future threats. The Intrepid Tiger II pod was designed to be a Family of Systems integrated into a larger system of systems to meet the requirements set forth by Headquarters Marine Corps to support the Marine Corps Strategy and Vision 2025 and Marine Corps Force Design.

In the summer of 2021, IT II (V)4 capability flew for the first time on an MV-22B Osprey. This was also the first time the capability was internally incorporated onto a platform.

IT II (V)1 is flown on the AV-8B Harrier, F/A-18 A++/C/D Hornets, and KC-130J aircraft. IT II (V)3 is flown on the UH-1Y Huey helicopter. Both variants are currently deployed in support of Marine Corps operations worldwide.
