ITT Industries is showcasing its modular scalable electronic-warfare and self-protection systems that can be tailored for use on fixed- and rotary-wing platforms ranging from the Special Forces’ C-130s to the new NH 90 helicopter, soon to enter service. As a major supplier of information and survivability aids for military aircraft, some 57 percent of company revenues are from the U.S., Western Europe accounts for 26 percent of sales and the Asia/Pacific and other regions are growing steadily in importance.

Recently the subject of a fundamental transformation, ITT Avionics has become a solutions provider, integrating components and systems into complete aircraft survivability suites. The company’s products are included on strategic bombers, cargo transports, fighters and helicopters, while customized systems have been installed in UAVs and nonaviation platforms.

The company’s Paris exhibit (Hall 3 Stand D11c) features an array of systems that may be pod-mounted or integrated into on-board avionics suites, while countermeasures suites such as the AN/ALQ-172 also promoted by the company, are offered to upgrade older aircraft. Earlier this year, ITT received a $48.2 million contract to deliver this system for installation on all B-52H/J bombers by 2009. The firm’s self-protection suites can tackle all types of threats.

The modularity of the company’s advanced technology, digital receiver-based radar warning receiver (RWR) and associated AVR-2 laser warning receiver (LWR) has eased the development of a lightweight, state-of-the art RWR for the U.S. Army, which embodies growth provisions for RF capability. The digital receiver-based RWR will be integrated with microwave and millimeter wave antenna assemblies, as well as the AVR-2 LWR.
