Norway Plans ALQ-162 Enhancement

April 14, 1998 (by Lieven Dewitte) - The Royal Norwegian Air Force is planning to enhance its Northrop Grumman AN/ALQ-162 internally-mounted deception jammers equipping its F-16 force, using the Shadowbox II upgrade. This will increase the capability of the baseline jammer to deny lock-on by pulse-Doppler (PD) and airborne intercept (AI) radar threats. The upgraded jammer is a "form-fit" replacement unit.
