Description: The AN/SLQ-32 is an electronic warfare (EW) system that provides powerful countermeasures protection for small and mid-size surface ships. The SLQ-32 systems feature a lens-fed multi-beam array that generates very high jamming power at continuous wave so that an almost unlimited variety of jamming techniques can be used. The SLQ-32(V)5 features SIDEKICK active jamming capability that adapts the previous feature through smaller, lighter and solid-state components. Overall, the SLQ-32 electronic warfare system primary goal is to to counter radar-guided anti-ship missiles. This electronic warfare system was deployed by the US Navy in 1974 as the AN/SLQ-32(V)1 onboard frigates and landing platform docks (LPDs).

The US Navy's Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 3 is a next generation electronic warfare (EW) system designed to provide early detection, signal analysis, threat warning and protection from anti-ship missiles. SEWIP Block 3 is aimed at enhancing the AN/SLQ-32 electronic warfare attack system through the addition of new technologies and capabilities. It will feature active and passive phased arrays including AESA technology, performing electronic warfare and communications functions with 360-degree coverage. The system interfaces with the ship's combat management system and will be able to operate in high clutter environments. Northrop Grumman was awarded a $267 million contract for the development and manufacture of SEWIP Block 3 on March 5, 2015.
