Description: The AN/SLQ-32 is an electronic warfare system that provides powerful countermeasures protection for small and mid-size 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
The SLQ-32(V)5 provides full threat band frequency coverage, instantaneous azimuth coverage, 100 percent probability of intercept and simultaneous response to multiple threats. It can detect threaten radars well before they detect the ship. The active jamming avoids long range targeting of the ship deceiving missiles launched against the ship. The SLQ-32 also has an on-line library of emitters for rapid identification of the threat.
Under the Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) existing AN/SLQ-32 systems will be upgraded improving data processing to better correlate and display signals intercepts from the legacy antenna. The AN/SLQ-32(V) Electronic Surveillance Enhancement (ESE) upgraded capabilities were developed by the Naval Research Laboratory. ESE was designed as a single-unit replacement for the existing SLQ-32(V) signal processing elements to be installed on the majority of US Navy capital ships.
SEWIP will enhance processors and control consoles on surface ships through 2025. A planned second upgrade will add small ship electronic support capabilities, special signal detection, processing, network centric warfare capabilities, and display enhancements with automation to improve operator situational awareness.
The first upgrade was introduced in October 2004, and the second upgrade was expected by December 2005. The SLQ-32(V) ESE was approved for low-rate initial production by the US Navy in early June 2005. For that purpose a contract valued at $15 million was awarded to Northrop-Grumman with the following contract activities to be carried out at Goleta facility, California.
The AN/SLQ-32(A)(V)(2) and the AN/SLQ-32(B)(V)(2) provide anti-ship missile defense capability to the US Navy.
