The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected Northrop Grumman for the Persistent Aquatic Living Sensors (PALS) programme under which the company will develop biological sensing hardware using underwater biological organisms to detect underwater threats.
“The detection, classification and tracking of undersea objects is a critical military capability and we are excited to work with DARPA to develop this next generation approach,” Monch reported quoting Mike Meaney, Northrop Grumman Vice President, Advanced Missions as saying Friday.
The company will develop the hardware with increased sensitivity for certain sensor modalities, and greater range. Artificial intelligence will be applied to observe patterns in the marine environment to help classify targets.
Northrop Grumman is partnered with Coda Octopus, Duke University, University of Maryland, Baltimore County and the University of Memphis.
Upgraded version Su-25 fighter, Su-25SM3 will be equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled target acquisition and sighting system to allow pilots to strike designated targets without their participation. "As part of further upgrade of attack aircraft, the latest Su-25SM3 versions will be furnished with a new sighting system
The US Air Force and Navy will not jointly develop next generation of fighters for the US Navy, a Navy official has said. Unlike the F-35, which has variants for each military branch, the Navy does not intend to use the Next Generation Air Dominance (NGAD) aircraft in penetration missions of highly contested airspace
China is constructing its first full-sized aircraft carrier dubbed Type 002, a carrier that seems smaller than 100,000-tonne US carriers but larger than France`s 42,500-tonne Charles de Gaulle, according to reports.

Northrop Grumman will integrate its µSAS sonar system onto L3Harris Technologies Iver4 Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) for a 12-month test period for the Defense Innovation Units (DIU) Next Generation Small-Class UUV program. The DIU is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) organization founded to help the US military make faster use of emerging commercial technologies
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is presently working on an advanced version of its first-generation, battery-powered, miniature chip-scale atomic clock (CSAC) with 1000x performance improvements for Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) applications. DARPAs Atomic Clock with Enhanced Stability (ACES) program aims to build the next-generation atomic clock owing to the limitations of the now commercially available CSACs
Northrop Grumman has demonstrated a Gallium Nitride (GaN)- based Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) to the US Army and will deliver its final LTAMDS proposal to the Army in the coming weeks for evaluation. The companys gallium nitride (GaN)-based design leverages advanced, in-production and fielded technologies from its active electronically scanned array (AESA) portfolio
Northrop Grumman has won a $65 million contract for long-lead components for the manufacture and delivery of three low-rate initial production Lot 5 MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft meant for US Navy and government of Australia. In addition, this contract provides equipment and associated materials for three ground stations for US Navy and government of Australia, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday
