The US Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command has hoisted a real EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft into the air at the Air Combat Environmental Test and Evaluation Facility anechoic chamber at Naval Air Station Patuxent River to test the Next Generation Jammer Mid-Band (NGJ-MB) pod.
As part of the testing process, the NGJ-MB Engineering Development Model (EDM) pods, developed by Raytheon, completed more than 400 hours of basic functionality, electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) data collection and performance testing over a period of three months.
