Repair Depot Case Study

dB Control is proud to be a prime depot repair and overhaul facility for the high-voltage power supplies used in the AN/ALQ-172 Countermeasures System (CMS) radar warning system.

Since 1999, Warner Robins Air Logistics Center has sent field AN/ALQ-172 HV power supplies to our factory, where they are repaired, refurbished and integrated with node TWTs before being forwarded to Teledyne Technologies for final assembly with the TWT.

The ALQ-172 Jammer provides the B-52H, AC-130U, MC-130H and other aircraft with electronic countermeasures (ECM) against airborne and ground-based fire-control radar systems and associated missiles. Developed in the early 1980s as an upgrade to the B-52G/H ECM suite, the ALQ-172 is currently being improved to cover a requirement identified during Operation Desert Storm. Updated with this modern technology, the B-52 will continue into the 21st century as an important element of US forces.
