Description: The AN/ALQ-214 is the next generation self-protection system for USAF and US Navy tactical and strategic aircraft. This system, jointly developed by BAe Systems and ITT, consists of on-board systems (ITT) and an off-board fiber optic towed decoy known as ALE-55 (BAe). The ALQ-214 will be able to detect and defeat lethal radar threats well beyond the 2010 timeframe. It will be integrated into the B-1B Lancer long range Bomber, replacing the aging ALQ-161, and into the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet multipurpose fighter. Eventually, ALQ-214 could be integrated for other aircraft.

In early September 2004, the US Navy approved the full rate production of AN/ALQ-214 Integrated Defensive Electronic Countermeasure (IDECM) Radio Frequency Countermeasure (RFCM) ordering 19 (V)2 systems worth $63.7 million for the F/A-18E/F aircraft. The work to be carried out by ITT is expected to be completed in August 2007. On January 14, 2005, ITT Avionics was awarded a $68 million contract for fiscal year 2005 full rate production II of 38 ALQ-214(V)2 systems. The work on the second full rate production contract is expected to be complete by July 2008.
