Full-rate production of the AN/TPS-80 AESA radar follows completion of the LRIP phase.

The LRIP phase of the Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) AESA multi-mission radar programme is now complete, after Northrop Grumman delivered its 15th  AN/TPS-80 radar to the USMC.

‘The team recently fielded the first full-rate production system to the Marine Corps and will continue deliveries through 2024,’ Northrop Grumman announced on 2 September.

The company added: Providing enhanced mission capabilities, software upgrades and logistics support are expected to continue through G/ATOR’s 30-year lifetime.

G/ATOR is designed to detect low-observable targets with low radar cross-sections such as rockets, artillery, mortars, cruise missiles and UAVs.
