June 4 (UPI) — The Defense Department modified a contract aimed at training aircrews in electronic warfare.
The modified contract between the U.S. Navy and Phoenix Air Group, is valued at more than $14.6 million and extends the current period of performance by two years, expiring in November 2020.
The deal, announced Friday, provides services in support of Navy electronic warfare aircraft training jamming systems. They are designed for “stand-off jamming for opposing force threat simulation during various levels of exercises for shipboard and aircrew tactics, aircraft weapon system operators and for procedures to counter potential enemy electronic attack threats,” according to the Pentagon.
Work on the contract will occur in Florida, California and Virginia.
No funds will be obligated to Phoenix Air Group at time of award, the Defense Department said.
