Stocks in this article: ELMG

EMS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELMG) announced today that its Defense & Space (D&S) division has been awarded a contract with Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (NGAS) to provide an anti-jam beam-forming network for the fourth Lockheed Martin-built Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) spacecraft. The contract is valued at $11.5 million. EMS D&S’s nulling system will help in safeguarding the AEHF constellation’s Milsatcom architecture, as it is designed to protect the spacecraft’s tactical network from jamming and piracy.

“Our products will help to provide secure communications to the warfighter,” said Marion Van Fosson, Vice President and General Manager, EMS Defense & Space. “Northrop Grumman is a strategic partner of EMS and we are excited to leverage our past performance into a future opportunity.”

EMS’s lightweight and cost-effective nulling technology is space-qualified; it is also featured on the preceding versions of AEHF payloads. EMS D&S has achieved gold and silver supplier ratings from Northrop Grumman for the AEHF program for several years. The program demonstrates EMS D&S’s expertise in manufacturing mission-critical satellite communications subsystems, including low noise amplifier assemblies, amplitude and phase weighting, power combining, switching networks and signal nulling subsystems.
