The U.S. Navy’s EA-18G Growler will soon have artificial intelligence on board to give its electronic warfare capabilities a much needed boost.
Last week, the Navy awarded a $7.3 million contract to Northrop Grumman to develop machine-learning algorithms that can quickly identify and jam enemy radar signals.
The Navy’s Growler, a variant of the F/A-18F Super Hornet, is specifically designed to wage electronic warfare and plays a critical role in operations in highly contested areas. The Growler is often deployed ahead of other aircraft to disrupt an enemy’s air defense system and provide critical cover.
