EMS Technologies bags $11.5 million contract to offer anti-jamming system for AEHF Satellite Payload

EMS Technologies announced that its Defense & Space
(D&S) division has been awarded a contract with Northrop Grumman Aerospace
Systems (NGAS) to provide an anti-jam beam-forming network for the fourth
Lockheed Martin-built Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) spacecraft.

The contract is valued at $11.5 million. EMS
D&S’s nulling system will help in safeguarding the AEHF constellation’s
Milsatcom architecture, as it is designed to protect the spacecraft’s tactical
network from jamming and piracy.

Our products will help to provide secure
communications to the warfighter. Northrop Grumman is a strategic partner of
EMS and we are excited to leverage our past performance into a future
opportunity,” said Marion Van Fosson, vice president and general manager, EMS
Defense & Space.

EMS’s cost-effective nulling technology is
space-qualified. It is featured on the preceding versions of AEHF payloads. EMS
D&S has achieved gold and silver supplier ratings from Northrop Grumman for
the AEHF program for several years.

The program demonstrates EMS D&S’s expertise in
manufacturing mission-critical satellite communications subsystems, including
low noise amplifier assemblies, amplitude and phase weighting, power combining,
switching networks and signal nulling subsystems.
