诺斯罗普·格鲁曼’s ICNI system provides F-35 pilots with more than 27 fully-integrated operational functions. Using its industry-leading software-defined radio technology, 诺斯罗普·格鲁曼’s的设计允许同时执行多项关键功能,同时大大减少了先进F-35战斗机的尺寸,重量和功率需求。这些功能包括“识别好友或敌人”(IFF),自动获取飞行点以及各种语音和数据通信,例如“多功能高级数据链接”(MADL)。

BAE系统’AN / ASQ-239系统是先进的,经过验证的电子战套件,可提供完全集成的雷达预警,目标支持和自我保护功能,以检测和击败威胁并使F-35达到防御良好的目标。

“As Lockheed Martin’s electronic warfare integrator for all F-35 aircraft, we’re committed to equipping our customers with advanced capabilities that help them conduct their missions,” said Deborah Norton, vice president of F-35 Solutions at BAE Systems. “Under this collaborative agreement, we will work closely with Lockheed Martin and 诺斯罗普·格鲁曼 to enhance the capability of our fully integrated EW system – heightening pilots’ situational awareness and helping them evade, engage and defeat modern threats.”

As the provider for F-35’s ICNI continuously since low rate initial production (LRIP) Lot 1, 诺斯罗普·格鲁曼 has delivered more than 750 shipsets to date. Components of the new functionality are planned to begin incorporation starting in 2025 (Lot 17) and will include upgraded electronics and software.

诺斯罗普·格鲁曼 plays a key role in the development, modernization, sustainment and production of the F-35. The company manufactures the center fuselage and wing skins for the aircraft, produces and maintains several sensors, avionics and mission systems as well as mission-planning software, pilot and maintainer training courseware, electronic warfare simulation testing and low-observable technologies.
