Personnel at the U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) Technology Applications Program Office wanted to infuse aircraft with a situational awareness and self-protection system.

They turned to ITT Electronic Systems engineers in White Plains, N.Y., for the solution. USASOC Technology Applications Program Office officials awarded ITT a $57.2 million firm-fixed-price contract for the AN/ALQ-211(V)6, as part of a $312 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity production contract. This critical situational awareness and protection system will be installed on Special Operations Aviation (SOA) MH-47 aircraft.

“Variants of these systems are protecting warfighters around the world, on both U.S. and international aircraft,” says ITT Electronic Systems president Chris Bernhardt.

ITT is contracted to deliver 25 systems, in addition to spares and lay-in material, to USASOC.
