ITT Corp has been awarded a $47.5 million firm fixed-price contract to procure 15 ALQ-21 1s, 4 airborne integrated defensive electronic warfare units, and 2 sets of antenna couplers for support production.

The effort is in support of the Royal Omani Air Force’s F-16 C/D model production aircraft.

Work is to be completed by December 31, 2014.

The next 10 years should see steady production of the ALQ-211 suite. Besides being a central controller for the whole EW suite, the ALQ-211 is a main RF jammer, RWR, and countermeasures provider. There are now at least 9 main variants in play, each tailored for a specific application.

In December 2011, the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the government of Iraq for 18 F-161Q aircraft and associated equipment, parts, weapons, training and logistical support.

The Iraqi government also requested a sale of 22 ALQ-211 AIDEWS, among other electronics systems.
