The award is part of a $11 Million USD development program led by GTRI to upgrade the processing ability of the ALQ-213.
ALQ-213 Electronic Warefare Management System (EWMS) was orginally developed for the F-16 in close co-operation with the Danish Air Force (RDAF
) and began production in 1997.
Terma North America is responsible for hardware qualification, operating system and the application software. "When fielded, this upgrade will greatly enhance the survivability of U.S. A-10 and F-16 block 30
fighters," says Ms Johanna Eliot, Manager, Air Force Programs.
