Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions said it received some $39 million in orders for radio-frequency microelectronics from defense contractor Harris Corp. Work will be split between the Cobham Microelectronic Solutions businesses in Kearny Mesa and San Jose.
The order supports a leading-edge electronic warfare program, the business said in a Nov. 28 announcement.
U.K.-based Cobham operates the former Remec microwave electronics business in San Diego.
“Cobham’s technology and manufacturing strategies allow for high levels of technical performance in demanding environments while meeting the affordability objectives of our customers and end markets,” Andy Graven, senior vice president and general manager of Cobham Microelectronics Solutions, said in a prepared statement.
Harris’ electronic warfare program lets aircraft protect themselves against surface-to-air and air-to-air radar-guided threats by detecting, identifying and managing electronic countermeasure responses to radar threats.
