Northrop Grumman is developing of a next-generation transceiver array system with digital beamforming for the US Navy.

Northrop Grumman is developing a new advanced AESA transceiver for USN shipboard applications under a $15.42 million contract from the Office of Naval Research.

The company is working on the Cooperative Engagement Replacement Elemental Digital Beamforming System for Multi-Beam Array for Cooperative Engagement (MACE), having been selected ahead of six other bidders.

‘This contract provides for the development of a next-generation MACE transceiver array system prototype,’ the DoD noted on 8 July.

Specifically, the contract covers an upgrade to planar array antenna assembly line replacement modules (LRMs) by creating an array with new RF and digital LRMs that provide simultaneous multi-beam communication capability.

The DoD expects Northrop Grumman to complete the work by July 2025.
