USMC orders more radars
The USMC is exercising three contract options to procure a total of eight more full-rate production AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) systems and one lot of spares from Northrop Grumman.
Work on the $236.94 million contract modification will be performed in Linthicum, Maryland for completion by 18 February 2024, the DoD announced on 12 February.
The AESA-based G/ATOR provides detection, tracking and air traffic control capabilities, according to Shephard Defence Insight. The multi-network capability enables compatibility with additional US DoD C2 systems.
The USMC received its first LRIP G/ATOR unit in 2017, before Northrop Grumman obtained the $958 million full-rate production contract for 30 systems in 2019. These radars will be delivered by mid-January 2025.
