Northrop Grumman Simulation And Training

Northrop Grumman


BUFFALO, N.Y. – The Northrop Grumman Corporation of Falls Church, Va. has received a $46 million delivery order for eight Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) Units. This award is a part of the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity JTE Enhanced Delivery Initiative contract awarded by the U.S. Air Force in December 2018.

JTE is a mobile air defense electronic warfare threat simulator that provides high-fidelity replication of surface-to-air missiles and anti-aircraft artillery threats for aircrew training.

“JTE is critical to the success of the U.S. military and our international allies,” said James Conroy, vice president, land and avionics C4ISR, Northrop Grumman. “The system ensures aircrews are better equipped to identify and effectively counter the most advanced enemy missile and artillery threats.”

Awarded by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, this award includes the delivery of eight wide-band variants of the threat emitter unit, as well as retrofit kits for some existing systems. Deliveries are slated for U.S. training ranges across the country and to select international locations. This will mark the second set of JTE systems delivered internationally. All work under this contract will be performed in Buffalo.
