Northrop Grumman details Northern Edge input
Northrop Grumman displayed a number of new strike, ISR and multi-domain C2 capabilities with military partners during the Northern Edge 2019 joint training exercise.
Northern Edge is the US Indo-Pacific Command’s biennial joint training exercise held in May at the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex and the Gulf of Alaska. The exercise, which involves all US military services and agency partners, as well as virtual participants from stateside and overseas bases, is designed to enhance air warfare and interoperability among the services in a highly contested environment.
Northrop Grumman displayed capabilities in air-to-air, air-to-surface and maritime tactical scenarios that address gaps in advanced strike, ISR and electronic warfare.
The company also demonstrated Battlefield Airborne Communications Node gateways and multi-level secure live, virtual and constructive training.
Other solutions tested during the exercise include auto target recognition and combat identification; advanced electronic protection and attack; cognitive mission computing; maritime search and track; long-range surface-to-air missile detection; and infrared search and track.
