Saudi Arabia has awarded Northrop Grumman [NOC] a $75 million deal to deliver support services for the company’s Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) electronic warfare threat simulator.
Under the deal, announced Thursday, Northrop Grumman will provide further support for the multi-threat, mobile simulator, which is used to train military personnel to counter EW attacks.
“Highly advanced and ready for the systems of today and tomorrow, JTE gives the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia an important capability for preparing its aircrews for operation in the modern electromagnetic spectrum environment,” said Walid Abukhaled, chief executive for Northrop Grumman Middle East, in a statement.
Northrop Grumman has deployed 23 of the ruggedized JTE systems domestically and internationally. JTE is designed to be easily relocated, and is reactive to fixed-wing and rotary-wing defense measures.
