Northrop Grumman has received an award from the US Army to develop the next generation of radar threat warning sensors, the AN/APR-39E(V)2, the company announced on 4 March.

Sophisticated radio frequency-guided weapons pose an increasing threat to aviators in contested airspace. Protecting aircrews from this new generation of mobile anti-aircraft weapons requires the ability to track a broader variety of threats across a wider spectral range.

The AN/APR-39E(V)2, previously known as the Modernized Radar Warning Receiver, will provide a new level of precision in detecting, locating and identifying threats by combining the company’s digital receiver exciter architecture with new digital signal processing algorithms.

The DRE architecture is also employed on the AN/APR-39D(V)2 radar warning receiver and other EW systems.
