L3Harris in on track to equip the U.S. Navy’s F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft with advanced electronic warfare (ADVEW) technologies.

L3Harris recently conducted Preliminary Design Review (PDR) for the company’s ADVEW system prototype, designed to provide F/A-18 jets with state-of-the-art countermeasures to complete their mission in an environment where threats and adversaries are becoming more sophisticated.

The company is now aiming for Prototype System Integration Lab Testing this summer.

L3Harris’ EW solutions area already successfully integrated on today’s F/A-18. The company’s integrated defensive electronic countermeasures (IDECM) AN/ALQ-214 on-board jammer (OBJ) helps protect the aircraft and crews against advanced radio frequency (RF) threats and sophisticated integrated air defense systems.
