IN BRIEF

The Journal of Electronic Defense | April 2014

22

Raytheon Space and Airborne
Systems (El Segundo, CA) announced
that several of its electronic warfare
programs are moving to a new mission
area, called Electronic Warfare Systems,
which will shift from the company's
Goleta, CA, location to its El Segundo
campus. The EW mission area will be led
by Travis Slocumb, previously the VP of
Strategy and Business Development for
Space and Airborne Systems. Slocumb
has worked on various Raytheon technology programs, including the next
generation jammer, EW self protection
systems, EW communications systems,
airborne information operations and
core EW initiatives.

✪ ✪ ✪
NAVAIR's Airborne Electronic Attack Program Office (PMA-234) introduced Capt. John Bailey as the new
program manager, replacing CAPT John
Green, who will now lead the Electronic
Warfare Infrastructure Improvement
Project Advance Development Program
Office, which is aligned under Acquisition Program Management, or AIR-1.0.
Bailey most recently served with the Air
Warfare Mission Area/From the Air Program Office (PMA-298) as the integrated
product team lead for all Integrated Fire
Control capability increments.

The DOD is encouraging industry to
form an Electromagnetic Spectrum Consortium to develop and mature technologies and support policy development to

enable advanced approaches to EMS
use. The envisioned collaboration between the Government and Industry
focuses on four major activities: maturing technologies that assist in improved
electromagnetic spectrum awareness,
sharing, and use; experimentation to
better inform the optimal allocation of
those technologies for both public and
private objectives; demonstration of new
technologies to increase trust among
spectrum stakeholders; and policy development to ensure technologies don't outpace the appropriate guidance for their
best use. DOD and the National Information Technology R&D (NITRD)/Wireless
Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Senior Steering
Group (SSG) recognize that both Government and industry can benefit from
an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA)
with a consortium, in order to achieve
more rapid contracting, acceleration of
discovery, unparalleled ability to tailor
research, policy consideration concurrent with technological advances, a more
focused and synergistic research agenda,
and relief from excessive bureaucratic requirements. Any company, university, or
research organization is eligible to join
the consortium. Specific industry segments of interest include wireless technologies, radars and signal processing,
electronic warfare, and spectrum monitoring and sensing. Government sponsors
will conduct an Industry Day at a future
date to be announced. Advance information can be obtained by interested
Government participants by contacting
Mrs. Ellen M. Purdy at ellen.m.purdy.
civ@mail.mil. Interested private entities
should contact Mr. Vanu Bose, at Spectrum_Consortium@vanu.com.

Exelis, Inc. (Clifton, NJ) was awarded a $91 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract
to exercise an option for the manufacture and delivery of 42 AN/ALQ-214(V)4
on-board jammer (OBJ) systems for the
Naval Air Systems Command. The AN/
ALQ-214(V)4/5 is an OBJ component
of the integrated defensive electronic
countermeasures (IDECM) system.

Air Force Materiel Command (Hill
AFB, UT) has issued a sources sought
solicitation for provisioning data and
initial spares for the US Air Force Joint
Threat Emitter (JTE). The JTE, which includes 18 fielded systems, is currently
undergoing a retrofit by Northrop Grumman Amherst Systems (Amherst, NY)
under the JTE Follow-on Production
(JTEFOP) contract, which will enable the
government to eliminate proprietary
software, gain full rights, a complete
technical data package, and the ability to purchase 5-15 additional systems.
The provisioning data and spares were
intended to be included in the JTEFOP
contract, however, the solicitation notes
that they ran into problems establishing
pricing evaluation criteria prior to the
award, so that portion has been broken
out into a separate solicitation. The
solicitation number is FA821014RJTEP.
Responses were due in mid February.

✪ ✪ ✪
Sierra Nevada Corp. (Sparks, NV) and
Northrop Grumman (Herndon, VA) are
each receiving firm-fixed-price, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts with a ceiling of $90 million for
Marine Corps Systems Command (Quantico, VA) for improvised explosive device
(IED) electronic warfare Marine Expeditionary United Special Operation capable
(CREW MEU (SOC)) dismounted systems.
The CREW MEU (SOC) program addresses
an urgent and compelling need for capabilities to counter a threat. The contracts
cover delivery of five initial production
systems for testing under the first delivery orders and for 360 production systems for each subsequent delivery order.
Work will be performed in Sparks, NV,
and Herndon, VA and is expected to be
complete in February 2019.

Correction: Due to an editing error, the
article "Technology Survey: A Sampling
of Traveling Wave Tubes, TWT Assemblies
and Microwave Power Modules," in the
March 2014 issue, incorrectly suggested
that solid-state technology is the primary
amplifier technology in some MPMs. This
is not the case. JED regrets the error. a
