What Goes On These Pylons?

An older generation of Learjet was heading out from Boeing Field.  I almost ignored it but I got a few shots as it rotated and climbed out.  As it did so I noticed it had a pod on an underwing pylon.  A little further research shows it belongs to Phoenix Air.  Apparently, they have a few Learjets that have electronic gear fitted – sometimes on pylons and sometimes internally.  This pod appears to have dielectric elements front and rear so may well be an EW pod of some sort.  I wonder if anyone knows more about these guys and what they would be up to.
