WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Raytheon Co is being awarded a $1.01 billion cost-plus-incentive-fee contract for 15 Next Generation Jammer engineering development model pods, the Defense Department said on Wednesday.

The Next Generation Jammer system is a pod-based tactical jammer that replaces the 40-plus-year ALQ-99 jammer system on the EA-18G aircraft, the department said.
