This award continues a long tradition of Cobham support to the Navy’s mission success in harm’s way. Cobham’s support to the Navy extends beyond Airborne Electronic Warfare. The Low Band Transmitter complements other ALQ-99 work, as well as the Next Generation Jammer, the Next Generation Airborne Electronic Attack study, and the fleet’s Integrated Topside (InTop) and Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP).
