Saab will supply Northrop Grumman with additional components and subsystems for the US Marine Corps AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) system under an $18.6 million contract announced on 5 December.

The G/ATOR system is an active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar being supplied to the US Marine Corps for air surveillance, air defence, ground weapon locating and air traffic control missions. 

This contract covers delivery of major subsystems and assemblies, as well as software, for the next nine Low Rate Initial Production units. The Saab developed and built assemblies will be integrated by Northrop Grumman into the Lots 3-5 G/ATOR systems which will be delivered to the US Marine Corps from 2018.

Erik Smith, president and CEO, Saab Defense and Security USA, said: ‘Saab's proven ability to provide innovative radar technology and highly capable solutions, on our own as well as in partnership with US primes, remains a strong foundation of our company and further supports our leading position as a supplier of radar and sensor systems in the global market.’
