LaBarge to support AN/ALQ-135 radars

ST. LOUIS, March 3 (UPI) -- U.S. company Northrop Grumman has awarded a follow-on contract to LaBarge Inc. for continued support of its radar jammer system production.

St. Louis-based LaBarge, an electronic and electromechanical products developer, was awarded a $1.7 million follow-on contract from Northrop Grumman.


Under the deal, LaBarge will deliver its electronic assemblies to support Northrop Grumman's production of AN/ALQ-135 radar jammer systems.

The U.S. Air Force deploys the AN/ALQ-135 radar system with the F-15 Eagle fighter aircraft to "detect and jam enemy radar signals, such as radar used by short-range surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft artillery and airborne threats," the release said.
