AN/ALQ-214 IDECM F/A-18 Countermeasure System
Survivability for mission success
The IDECM AN/ALQ-214 OBJ features autonomous operations within hostile environments to protect aircrew and aircraft against advanced radio frequency (RF) threats. This protection enables enhanced survivability by allowing the aircrew to concentrate on mission success. The system is designed to counter RF guided threats with proven electronic countermeasures (ECM) techniques that deny, disrupt, delay and degrade launch and engagement sequences. Each threat is identified, prioritized, countered and displayed to the aircrew for situational awareness as well as self-protection. The IDECM AN/ALQ-214 utilizes a modular and reprogrammable system to provide theater specific configurations.
