Three bids were received for this contract

Raytheon has won a $279.4 million contract with the U.S. Navy to provide developmental efforts in support of the Next Generation Jammer Program.

The Next Generation Jammer Program will replace the aging ALQ-99 tactical jamming system for integration on the EA-18G tactical aircraft, the Defense Department said in a release.

Specifically, Raytheon will provide developmental efforts in support of the program's Technology Development Phase, which is meant to develop a cost-effective electronic attack system with increased interoperability, extended broadband capabilities for greater threat coverage, and enhanced agility and precision within jamming assignments.

Work will be performed in El Segundo, Calif., Ft. Wayne, Ind., Dallas, Torrance, Calif., Clearfield, Utah, McKinney, Texas, Tucson, Ariz., Marion, Va., Goleta, Calif., Forest, Miss., and Andover, Mass.; it is expected to be completed by May 2015.

Funding in the amount of $50 million is obligated at the time of the award, and will not expire at the end of fiscal 2013.
