Northrop Grumman to take part in ANTX

16th August 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Northrop Grumman will demonstrate new autonomous technologies during the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Panama City this month, the company announced on 14 August.

The company will demonstrate an advanced mission management and control system that uses an open architecture approach and is aligned with emerging requirements to rapidly integrate multiple capabilities into a relevant mission scenario.

The three day exercise, designed to demonstrate future US Navy technologies in a collaborative, low risk environment, will see government, academia and industry participants carry out a range of demonstrations.

Multiple unmanned undersea vehicles, unmanned surface vehicles and a surrogate unmanned aerial vehicle will collaboratively conduct seabed warfare in a contested environment. Autonomous systems will collect, analyse and synthesise data from numerous sensors to develop real-time targeting solutions that enable an unmanned undersea vehicle to engage an adversary’s seabed infrastructure.

Alan Lytle, vice president, undersea systems business unit Northrop Grumman, said: ‘Emerging threats are changing the undersea battlespace in complex ways and at an increasing pace. Integration of our proven system of systems capabilities optimises the deployment of our naval forces and provides commanders with a decisive advantage.’
