U.S. Navy's SEWIP Block 3 electronic warfare system completes CDRNews
May 09, 2016
LINTHICUM, Md. Engineers at Northrop Grumman completed the critical design review (CDR) for the U.S. Navy's Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP) Block 3 AN/SLQ-32(V)7 electronic warfare system.
The CDR focused on the design of the electronic attack subsystem that will make up a deployable AN/SLQ-32(V)7 system. It enables ships to counter threats non-kinetically, and Northrop Grumman officials say it will be installed in approximately 50 ships that are currently identified in the current budget plan.
The review of the design for the auxiliary support, power, cooling components, and shipboard compatibility will be conducted later this year. The U.S. Navy will receive two prototypes that stem out of the final design at the end of the Engineering Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase.
