Northrop Grumman has demonstrated its Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) solution for the US Army at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

The company’s gallium nitride (GaN)-based design leverages advanced, in-production and fielded technologies from its active electronically scanned array portfolio.

Christine Harbison, vice president, land and avionics C4ISR division, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘Our mature, GaN-based design demonstrated an advanced system with our current capabilities aligned with the army’s requirements.

‘Our solution supports the need for rapid deployment with an architecture that allows for significant margin of capability growth to protect our warfighters today and in the rapidly changing threat environment.’

Northrop Grumman will deliver its final LTAMDS proposal to the army in the coming weeks for evaluation.
