10th December 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab will supply components and subsystems for full rate production systems for the US Marine Corps Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) under an order announced on 9 December.

The $31.9 million order has been placed under the company’s five-year contract for G/ATOR, which is known as AN/TPS-80 in US service.

G/ATOR provides the US Marine Corps with air surveillance, air defence and ground weapon locating mission capabilities in a single ground-based radar solution.

Saab received the order from Northrop Grumman, which is the prime contractor for G/ATOR to the US Marine Corps. Saab’s order includes options for additional sets of assemblies and associated spares.

Deliveries are anticipated to take place between 2020 and 2024.
