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.
