The US Air Force has decided to press on with installing an electronic combat / jammer capability on the B-52 bomber. The B-52 Stratofortress will be outfitted with the Core Component Jammer (CCJ) to disrupt enemey electronics and communications systems.

The B-52H is considered the only current platform in the USAF inventory with enough range and loiter time to carry the jamming mission deep into enemy territory.
