Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has received a $68 million multiyear indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to continue supplying the Advanced Capability Pod (ACaP) to the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy for use on F-15, F-16 and F/A-18 tactical aircraft.
Designed by ELTA Systems Ltd. and produced by Exelis, the ACaP system provides the aircraft with a lightweight, cost-effective and fully integrated electronic radio frequency countermeasures capability. The system offers simultaneous receive and jam coverage against multiple concurrent threats, acting fully autonomously while allowing for aircrew intervention when manual control is required.
"The ACaP jamming pod is the most effective radar jammer in its class, offering pilots unparalleled electronic protection and the ability to counter advanced anti-access/area denial strategies in hostile, high-threat environments,” said Pete Martin, director of defense systems for the Exelis electronic attack & release systems business. "This award further demonstrates Exelis’ role as a global leader in electronic warfare."
The Exelis Electronic Systems division in Amityville, N.Y., provides the ACaP. Deliveries under the latest contract are expected to begin in July 2014.
