Exelis Wins Follow-On Work for Next Generation Jammer Program, Chris Bernhardt Comments

ITT Exelis has received a $20 million U.S. Navy contract to extend work for the Next Generation Jammer program’s technology maturation phase, the company announced Thursday.

Exelis will continue to develop next-generation technology as part of the standoff jamming initiative.

NGJ will enable U.S. forces to disrupt and disable an enemy’s ground-based communications and electronic warfare capabilities.

Through the contract Exelis will work to reduce weight and size of the hardware, enhance radiated power from arrays and improve exciter technology which generates jamming signals.

Chris Bernhardt, Exelis executive vice president and president of the Electronic Systems division said the new contract continues Exelis’ innovative maturation work on digital beam-forming, electronically steerable arrays and other critical technologies integral for U.S. Forces protection.

Work will be performed in Clifton, N.j., and North Amityville, N.y.
