Tracor Flight Systems Inc. in Santa Ana has received a contract valued at more than $1 million to develop components for an electronic warfare simulation system for the Air Force.

The work will be performed for General Dynamics Corp., which is the prime contractor on the Air Force Electronic Warfare Evaluation Simulator.

Tracor Flight, a subsidiary of Tracor Inc. of Austin, Tex., said the contract involves upgrading an existing Air Force threat simulator. The system simulates enemy radar signals and radio transmissions that could occur in a battle situation.

Work on the program will be done at Tracor Flight's Santa Ana facility.
