USMC To Get Saab Ground, Air defence Radar
Saab has won a contract valued $31.9 million to supply components and subsystems for US Marine Corps' Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR), which has the US designation AN/TPS-80.
 
The initial order value is USD 31.9 million and the contract includes options for additional systems over a five-year period. G/ATOR provides the US Marine Corps with capability for air surveillance, air defence, and ground weapon locating missions in one single ground-based radar solution, the company said in a statement Monday. 
 
Saab received the order from Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, who is the prime contractor for G/ATOR to the US Marine Corps. Saab’s order includes options for additional sets of assemblies and associated spares. Deliveries are anticipated to take place between 2020 and 2024.
 
Saab received the initial G/ATOR order, which covered low rate initial production units, from Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation in 2014. Saab will carry out the work in Syracuse, NY, US.
