Cost changes since the original baseline are separately categorized as schedule, engineering, or estimating "allocations." The total impact of a quantity change is the identified "quantity" change plus all associated "allocations." Current Estimate ($ in millions) June 2008 (89 programs) $1,642,568.6 Less final reports on two programs (ERM and MM III GRP) -2,835.9 Plus initial reports on four programs (EA-6B ICAP III, +11,425.2 GPS IIIA, IDECM, and JCA) June 2008 Adjusted (91 programs) $1,651,157.9 Changes Since Last Report Economic $0.0 Quantity -3,062.0 Schedule +876.9 Engineering +72.2 Estimating +562.9 Other 0.0 Support -1,315.6 Net Cost Change $-2,865.6 September 2008 (91 programs) $1,648,292.3
A technology leader, ITT Industries has developed the next-generation of electronic protection suites with the AN/ALQ-211 Family of Systems and the AN/ALQ-214 IDECM RFCM.
The IDECM RFCM uses an onboard receiver and processing system developed and manufactured by ITT Industries' Avionics division.
Key among them are AESA upgrades, Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) Block IV, and the Infrared Search and Track (IRST) sensor.
Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) has received a USD97 million order to provide the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) with self protection jammers for the integrated defensive electronic countermeasures (IDECM) program.
Installed on US- Navy F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, the AN/ALQ-214(V)3 RF Countermeasures System (RFCM) is a major subsystem within the overall IDECM suite also including Raytheon ALR-67(V)3-RWR, Raytheon AN/ALE-50 or BAE Systems AN/ALE-55 FOTDs in addition to ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser.
IDECM (Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures)--This is the initial SAR for the IDECM program.
In a surprising turn, the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) awarded a $63.7-million, sole-source production contract on September 2 under the Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) program not to original prime contractor BAE System (Nashua, NH) but to ITT Avionics (Clifton, NJ), formerly BAE Systems' principle subcontractor on the IDECM program.
Elements to this variant of Super Hornet can include conformai fuel tanks, an advanced cockpit consisting of large area touch display, and an infrared search and track (IRST) system, AESA radar upgrades, and Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (IDECM) Block IV to name but a few.
The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet entered service with a suite based on that of the earlier C/D model, but is now equipped with a more sophisticated suite that includes a Raytheon AN/ALR-67(V)3 RWR, and a BAE Systems/ITT AN/ALQ-214(V) Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasures (Idecm).
