BAE Systems lands contract for protective decoys
The decoys, about the size of a large airplane model, are towed behind carrier-based fighter jets and work with the jet's electronic warfare systems to jam radar-seeking devices in air-to-air missiles. The decoys can also lure incoming missiles away from their target.
BAE in Nashua began full-rate production of the U.S. Navy AN/ALE-55 fiber-optic towed decoy in October, 2011 as part of a $36.7 million development contract.
