Raytheon Tests 'Cerberus' EW Tech with Aerial Decoy Jammer Platform - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have collaborated to demonstrate an aerial decoy jammer platform equipped with an electronic warfare architecture at a recent Northern Edge military exercise held in Alaska.

Cerberus interchangeable EW payloads were integrated onto the Raytheon-built Miniature Air Launched Decoy-Jammer vehicle and tested in multiple operationally relevant scenarios, the company said Wednesday.

The company derived Cerberus’ quick-attachment feature from a Dallara racing technology.

Raytheon was awarded a contract to produce MALD-J, which is a radar-jamming variant of the basic decoy, for the U.S. Air Force.

The less than 300-pound flight vehicle imitates flight profiles and radar signatures of friendly aircraft to confuse adversaries’ air defenses.

Raytheon designed the vehicle with a modular architecture and to operate for up to 500 nautical miles.
