AN/ALQ-131(V) ECM Pod


The ALQ-131(V) handles known, emerging and future terminal threats in a variety of complex, dense threat environments.

Designed to easily add new capabilities, the ALQ-131(V) is currently undergoing a Mid-Life Upgrade (MLU) to provide the next-generation capabilities and performance. MLU improvements include a transmitter upgrade, advanced technique upgrade and improved sustainment and availability.

Currently operational on A-10, F/RF-4, F-16 and C-130 aircraft in the United States and 11 other countries, the AN/ALQ-131(V) electronic countermeasures (ECM) pod is one of the most successful ECM systems ever built.
