Northrop Grumman demos HAMMR

29th May 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman successfully demonstrated its Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) during the US Army’s counter-rocket, artillery and mortar test at Yuma Proving Ground earlier this year, the company announced on 23 May.

The HAMMR radar is designed for situational awareness, counter-fire operations, air defence, early warning and airspace management.

During the demonstration, the radar successfully detected and identified group I and II UAS, providing real-time situational awareness to the operator. The radar also validated its ability to connect to the army’s Forward Area Air Defense command and control system, enabling the communication of information from the system back to the force. 

HAMMR integrates an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) fighter radar mounted on a ground vehicle or towable trailer to provide continuous 360-degree protection against multiple ground and airborne targets. The modular system includes on-board prime power and cooling, AESA and radar electronics and operator/maintainer display modules. These modules support multiple packaging concepts, making HAMMR easily adaptable to multiple vehicle types, fixed installations and C2 interfaces.
