Northrop Grumman awarded AN/SPQ-9B work
Northrop Grumman will act as design agent for the US Navy’s AN/SPQ-9B surface search and fire control radar, the company announced on 25 July.
The company will provide support to existing and future systems, troubleshoot issues, perform redesign efforts as parts go obsolete and add new capabilities to the baseline system. This will provide the navy with uninterrupted technical assistance in their system installations, upgrades and follow-on production efforts.
This follow-on engineering services contract will continue to support the installed base of 50 AN/SPQ-9B radar systems on ships and at six land sites, as well as future systems as they are delivered to the fleet.
Todd Leavitt, vice president, maritime systems, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘By leveraging our expertise and partnership with the US Navy, we have developed radar systems that increasingly support complex missions. We are committed to maximising the design and engineering of this technology and enhancing capability that will extend to the navy’s next generation radars.’
