Harris Corporation has won a $133 million contract to supply electronic jammers to U.S. Navy and Australian F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft.

The contract for Lot 14 ALQ-214(V)4/5 integrated defensive electronic counter-measures jammers is worth $133 million. Australia is receiving the jammers through the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program, the company said in a statement Monday.

Harris said the equipment will be used on F/A-18C/D/E/F variants. Deliveries are expected to be completed by May of 2020.

"Naval aviators face a growing range of threats as their missions evolve and hostile actors gain access to increasingly advanced technology," Ed Zoiss, president of Harris Electronic Systems said.
