ITT Exelis moves ahead with AIDEWS airborne electronic warfare systems development and tests

CLIFTON, N.J., 6 Jan. 2012. Electronic combat experts at the ITT Exelis (NYSE:XLS) Electronic Systems division in Clifton, N.J., have installed and tested an advanced self-defense airborne electronic warfare system on an international F-16 jet fighter aircraft. The company did not name the specific country for which its engineers performed the tests. The ITT Exelis ALQ-211 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare System (AIDEWS) completed several F-16 sorties against several different kinds of radar threats, company officials say.

AIDEWS provides fighter pilots with situational awareness and protection against radar-based surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles. The ITT Exelis ALQ-211 AIDEWS and its RF and microwave components can be internally integrated or pod-mounted. Either configuration offers integrated radar warning and electronic countermeasures capability, company officials say.

AIDEWS is built on the ALQ-211 family of electronic warfare systems that support U.S. and allied military helicopters and jet fighters, including the NH-90, V-22, MH-47, MH-60, F-16, and several commercial aircraft, ITT Exelis officials say.

The system is in full production with more than 180 under contract for six international customers, company officials say. To date, 140 systems have been delivered. For more information contact ITT Exelis Electronic Systems online at www.exelisinc.com/business/electronicsys.
