The U.S. Navy awarded Northrop Grumman $252 million for Next Generation Targeting Handheld System (NGHTS).
The effort includes low-rate initial production, full-rate production, testing, spare parts, engineering services, logistics support, training and documentation, a U.S. DoD release today said.
Work is expected to be completed by February 2030.
The NGHTS is a single, lightweight, man-portable system that enables Marines to quickly acquire targets; perform guidance against targets; and generate target location data during combat operations.
The military currently uses four legacy systems: the Portable Lightweight Designator Rangefinder, Joint Terminal Attack Controller, Laser Target Designator and Thermal Laser Spot Imager. The intent is for NGHTS to replace three of the legacy systems.
