Northrop Grumman to supply JTE EW training systems to Saudi Arabia
Northrop Grumman Corporation has received a US$75m (A$96m) contract to supply Joint Threat Emitter (JTE) support services to Saudi Arabia.
The company says the JTE offers realistic warfighter training and provides a modern, reactive battlespace environment that trains military personnel to identify and counter enemy missile and artillery threats. It says JTE is a robust and ruggedised system that is easily relocated, reactive to aircrew/aircraft for fast-jet, fixed-wing and rotary-wing defensive measures, and can be rapidly reprogrammed with new threat parameters.
USAF JTE systems have been deployed to Australia for Exercises Pitch Black and Diamond Storm in recent years, and the system has been proposed to Australia to fulfil the ADF’s delayed JP 3021 mobile threat emitter project.
