High-power amplifiers selected for U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Jammer

MELVILLE, N.Y. Northrop Grumman officials placed a multimillion dollar order with Comtech PST Corp. -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp.'s subsidiary -- to provide solid-state, high-power RF amplifier systems for use on the U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Jammer – Low Band (NGJ-LB) Demonstration of Existing Technologies (DET).

The NGJ system will augment, and ultimately replace the EA-18G Growler aircraft’s legacy ALQ-99 Tactical Jammer System with advanced airborne electronic attack capabilities for defeating increasingly advanced and capable threats.
