Northrop Grumman has received a contract from the US Army’s Lower Tier Programme Office to perform work under the Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) programme, the company announced on 8 December.

Under the contract, the company will perform risk reduction for radar technology and associated mission capabilities intended to replace the army’s 50-year-old Patriot radar.

LTAMDS will be the first net centric radar to be added to the army’s Integrated Air and Missile Defense enterprise controlled by the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS). IBCS is the advanced command and control system that integrates air and missile defence sensors and weapons, including Patriot, to generate a real-time comprehensive threat picture and enable any-sensor, best-shooter operations.

Northrop will leverage its ground based radar experience for the work, including the AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR active electronically scanned array radar for the US Marine Corps.

Roshan Roeder, VP, global ground based radars, Northrop Grumman, said: ‘We are excited about this award and the overall mission capabilities we can provide the army. We have more than 45 years of experience in providing proven surveillance and threat engagement capabilities to more than 35 global customers.’
