ITT Corporation recently completed the System Functional Review to an upgrade for the U.S. Air Force B-1B's major self-protection system.
The upgrade of the 20-year old technology will improve reliability and maintainability. The redesign incorporates new technology, as well as a redesign of test and support equipment., for the Band 4-8 Receiver Line Replacement Unit(LRU) in the AN/ALQ-161, the major protection system for the United States Air Force's B-1B Bomber.

The review ensures that the design requirements are addressed by the system.

The next development step for ITT is the preliminary design phase, which culminates in a formal Preliminary Design Review currently planned for the late 2009.
