“Our team is thrilled with the opportunity to participate in this important Navy program,” said Sean J. Stackley, Corporate Senior Vice President and President of Communications & Networked Systems. “As the spectrum converges between communications and electronic warfare, we saw a chance to provide a unique solution that addresses current, advanced and emerging threats.”

Over the past few years, L3 Technologies has conducted successful Navy technology demonstrations that operate cooperatively in electronic attack and electronic sensing. These exercises proved L3’s unique capabilities and technological approach were well-suited for addressing the Navy’s requirements and served as building blocks for the NGJ program.

Mr. Stackley added, “We listened closely to our customers. We took a non-traditional approach and teamed with small businesses with a strong track record of performance in developing truly innovative capabilities for recent Navy programs. L3 is proud to have earned the privilege to participate in the NGJ program, and we are committed to delivering the performance our Navy customer needs.”

Work on this program will be executed by L3 Broadband Communications in Salt Lake City, Utah.
