Summary
This GAO report details the examination of an Air force program to acquire an upgraded version of the ALQ-135 electronic jammer. The purpose of the jammer is to protect F-15 aircraft against threat weapons by transmitting electronic signal countermeasures against radars intended to control threat missiles and guns. The report recommends a halt to further awards of production contracts until operational testing provides assurance that the jammers will meet performance requirements. The report also suggests that adequate internal controls be established over Air Force jammer programs to ensure that the jammers will be satisfactorily tested and demonstrated before production and deployment. The Department of Defense disagreed with aspects of the report, but accepted parts of it with reservations. This GAO Report was performed from March 1993 through August 1994
