RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Cobham Awarded $31 Million U.S. Navy Contract for Additional
Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group

Cobham Awarded $31 Million U.S. Navy Contract for Additional Low Band Transmitters

LANSDALE, Pennsylvania – Cobham has been awarded a $31.7 million contract from the US Navy's Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to manufacture the AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group for Navy and Marine Corps EA-6B and EA-18G electronic warfare aircraft. The contract funds the sixth full-rate production lot, and includes the first installment of two-part procurement for a Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to undisclosed customers.

This award brings the total number of production orders to 314 of 337 required transmitters and, to date, 230 transmitters have been delivered.

The AN/ALQ-99 Low Band Transmitter-Antenna Group (LBT-AG), developed by Cobham Defence Electronics, has been in production since 2005. The LBT is designed to protect strike aircraft, ships, and ground troops by disrupting enemy radar and communications. It is flown on US Navy EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G aircraft and Marine Corps EA-6B aircraft, and has been used in combat operations.

This award continues a long tradition of Cobham support to the Navy's mission success in harm's way. Cobham's support to the Navy extends beyond Airborne Electronic Warfare. The Low Band Transmitter complements other ALQ-99 work, as well as the Next Generation Jammer, the Next Generation Airborne Electronic Attack study, and the fleet's Integrated Topside (InTop) and Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Programme (SEWIP).
