through a qualification process.
"So,
when we start to build these ECP variants
for international customers, they
will be a qualified replacement asset for
the older AN/ALQ-136 system."
Exelis has been marketing the ECP
variant of the ALQ-136 internationally
for a number of years and has a number
of approved LORs and LOAs (letters of offer
and acceptance) from various customers.
The company is looking for an RFP to
come through soon from Army Communications-Electronics
Command (CECOM)
and Army Aviation and Missile Command
(AMCOM) for these orders. Says Rambala,
"As we continue to mature our technology,
we're focusing on those opportunities
on the Apache, predominantly in the
international market, where they don't
currently have a jammer capability. If we
can build the upgraded ECP version of the
ALQ-136 for FMS users, it would be available
to the Army down the road as well,
were they to choose to buy it."
MH-60R SEAHAWK
On the US Navy side, its MH-60R
"Seahawk" anti-submarine warfare helicopters
are equipped with the Lockheed
Martin AN/ALQ-210 ESM system.
The ALQ-210 provides full ESM, ELINT,
situational awareness and threat warning
functions with automatic cueing of
the aircraft's countermeasures dispensing
system.
The ALQ-210 simultaneously performs
both RWR and ESM situational
awareness functions on the MH-60R. As
noted by Lockheed's Mason, this is an
important consideration on a platform
where size, weight and power (SWAP)
are critical considerations. And, Mason
emphasizes "the additional situational
awareness benefits provided to the MH60R
by the ALQ-210s ESM data collection
is not to be trivialized, as it operates
in an extremely dense maritime signals
environment."
Although the 210 is an analog system,
Mason says it still performs extremely
well and,
thus
far,
the Navy
hasn't indicated a need to upgrade the
system. Lockheed has fielded approximately
250 ALQ-210 systems to the US
Navy and are now starting to market a
derivative version of the system internationally.
