Raytheon to Develop DARPA Frequency Jamming Tech

Raytheon Co. won a $3.8 million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency contract to develop new frequency jamming technology, Raytheon announced Thursday.

Raytheon hopes to demonstrate technology that can generate high-power, tunable, linear microwave signals across various frequencies.

DARPA intends the High-Power Efficient RF Digital-to-Analog Converter program to equip sea and ground vehicles, tactical aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles with the jamming technology.

Raytheon said the technology has been difficult to develop to meet high power requirements.
