CAES to provide RF assemblies for the F-16 Viper Shield
Wednesday, 29 September 2021
CAES will leverage its design approaches and high volume manufacturing expertise to deliver a frequency synthesiser and integrated RF assemblies that meet the L3Harris Viper Shield system requirements.

CAES has been selected by L3Harris Technologies to develop RF assemblies for its new Viper Shield all-digital electronic warfare (EW) suite. The AN/ALG-254(V)1 Viper Shield is a custom virtual electronic shield for the F-16 Block 70/72 multirole aircraft and is designed to provide protection and offensive EW capabilities to warfighters.

CAES will leverage its design approaches and high volume manufacturing expertise to deliver a frequency synthesiser and integrated RF assemblies that meet the L3Harris Viper Shield system requirements for size, weight, power and cost.

“For years CAES and L3Harris have collaborated on many critical missions that keep our world safe and we are proud to partner once again on its new completely digital Viper Shield suite,” says Mike Kahn, President and CEO, CAES. “Our decades-long experience in reliably delivering advanced EW capabilities combined with our pioneering innovations in RF, microwave, and millimetre wave electronics make us a long-term partner of choice for defense primes.”

Developed in partnership with Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force, the Viper Shield provides U.S. allies with countermeasures against ever-changing threats. The L3Harris system features a virtual electronic shield that leverages modern all-digital architecture using commercial off the shelf technology to provide enhanced system performance, a smaller form factor, reduced weight and easier future upgrades.
