Northrop Grumman on 4 May confirmed that it has partnered with Raytheon Technologies to develop the Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) as part of a US Missile Defence Agency (MDA) contract.

Both companies currently provide the MDA with interceptor boosters, kill vehicles, ground systems, fire control and engagement coordination for the Ground-Based Midcourse Defence System and have collectively carried out over 30 successful exoatmospheric intercepts.

Blake Larson, corporate VP and president of Northrop Grumman Space Systems, said: ‘We have the right team, technology and expertise in place to meet our customer’s needs for enhanced capabilities, from the identification of a ballistic missile launched by an adversary, all the way to its elimination.’
