"Work will be performed at Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be complete by June 30, 2020. Fiscal 2016 and 2017 procurement [...] Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, is the contracting activity," the US DoD stated on its website.

The MALD-J is the jammer variant of the basic ADM-160 Miniature Air Launched Decoy, a decoy missile developed by Raytheon. The first MALD-J was delivered to the Air Force on September 6, 2012 and the system completed operational testing in April 2015.

This variant of the MALD decoy can operate in both decoy and jammer modes. It is launched against a preplanned target and jam specific radars in a stand-in role to degrade or deny the IADS detection of friendly aircraft or munitions.
