Lockheed to Install Electronic Warfare Pods on Navy MH-60 Helicopters - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin has secured a contract to equip the U.S Navy‘s fleet of MH-60 helicopters with electronic warfare pods designed to help the military service detect and respond to anti-ship missile threats.

The company said Thursday its Advanced Off-Board Electronic Warfare Active Mission Payload AN/ALQ-248 system works to deter incoming ASM threats with the use of radio frequency countermeasure techniques.

The system can function independently or with a ship’s SEWIP Block 2 AN/SLQ-32(V)6  electronic surveillance sensor, Lockheed added.

The contract includes multiple options for the company to deliver up to 18 AOEW AMP AN/ALQ-248 pods to the Navy.

“Every day ships across the world are facing a variety of evolving threats,“ said Joe Ottaviano, Lockheed’s electronic warfare program director.

“Our Advanced Off-Board Electronic Warfare AMP AN/ALQ-248 system will help create a coordinated attack against these threats, to keep our warfighters safe by controlling the electromagnetic spectrum and disrupting adversaries,” Ottaviano added.
