25th November 2013 - 16:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman will supply additional AN/TPS-78 air defence and surveillance radar systems to the Royal Thai Air Force under a contract announced on 25 November.

Deliveries under the contract will begin in 2015. Northrop Grumman will also provide training, spares and logistics support.

The Northrop Grumman AN/TPS-78 is a mobile radar designed to operate in harsh environments. It utilises high power transistor technology to detect small targets in areas of difficult land and sea clutter, making it well suited for use in mountainous and coastal regions.

Robert Royer, vice president, Northrop Grumman International Systems business unit, said: ‘With this award, we continue our 25 years of support of the Royal Thai Air Force and the national security infrastructure of Thailand. Highly mobile and proven in a wide range of environmental conditions, the AN/TPS-78 will give the Royal Thai Air Force a powerful new capability for monitoring its national airspace.’

The S-Band, long-range AN/TPS-78 is in use with the US Air Force and a variety of customers worldwide. To date, AN/TPS-78 systems have logged more than 1 million operating hours.
