Engility Corp. has been awarded a $9.3 million contract to provide electronic warfare enhancements to aircraft of the U.S. Navy and Australian government.
The modification adds $9.3 million to a previous indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract worth more than $39.8 million dollars in award obligations for electronic warfare weapon system modifications to the U.S. Navy and Australian government's electronic warfare aircraft.
The modifications will benefit the Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler, the Boeing EA-18G Growler, Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye, Sikorsky MH-60 Seahawk, Northrop Grumman MQ-4C Triton and the Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircraft.
"Services to be provided include systems engineering, in-service hardware and software engineering, intelligence data analysis, test and evaluation, EW systems development, threat analysis, threat defeat, mission planning, and EW data development," said a U.S. Navy press statement.
The electronic warfare weapons systems will receive internal software system upgrades to allow for better threat analysis and sensor intelligence mission data files, along with other enhanced capabilities like signals jamming techniques.
Work on the contract will be performed in Point Mugu, Calif., and is expected to be completed in September 2018.
