Cobham has been awarded a US $39 million contract from the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to manufacture the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group for US Navy and Marine Corps EA-6B and EA-18G electronic warfare aircraft.

The contract is a modification to a previously awarded firm fixed price Full Rate Production contract to exercise an option for 48 Low Band Transmitters; 13 vertically polarized antennas; and 28 horizontally polarized antennas associated with the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter- Antenna Group. The contract’s initial award procured 60 Low Band Transmitters and an associated number of antenna assemblies in a variety of configurations.

The AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group (LBT-AG), developed by Cobham Sensor Systems, has been in production since 2005. The LBT is designed to protect strike aircraft, ships, and ground troops by disrupting enemy radar and communications. It is flown on US Navy EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G aircraft and Marine Corps EA-6B aircraft, and has been used in combat operations.

All work will be performed in Lansdale, Pa. and is expected to be completed by August 2014.
