Northrop Grumman will be highlighting its advances in U.S. military systems and related electronic technologies at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition 2013.
The exhibit will feature Northrop Grumman's advances in aircraft protection, including the common infrared countermeasure (CIRCM) system and AN/APR-39 radar-warning receiver. CIRCM, which is a lightweight, low-cost, high-reliability laser-based countermeasure system, is designed to integrate and operate with legacy and emerging missile warning systems for rotary wing, tilt-rotor and small fixed-wing aircraft across the military services.
The AN/APR-39 provides continuous 360-degreecoverage to automatically detect and identify threat type, bearing and lethality, then alerts the crew to each threat with a graphical symbol on the cockpit multifunction display or video display.
Northrop Grumman will also showcase its Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS) that optimizes battle management command and control and significantly improves cost effectiveness and flexibility.
The system-of-systems IBCS recently incorporated the Patriot Advanced Capability-2 (PAC-2) and PAC-3 missile, and Sentinel radar capabilities, validating the common open architecture-based approach to integrating sensors and weapons systems within the integrated fire control network.
Also on display will be Northrop Grumman's family of tactical radars, including the vehicle and dismount exploitation radar (VADER) and the small tactical radar – lightweight (STARLite), which is the U.S. Army radar program of record for the MQ-1CGray Eagle unmanned aircraft system. Weighing just 65 pounds, STARLite is ideal for equipping a variety of manned and unmanned aerial system platforms for mission-critical tactical reconnaissance. STARLite is capable of conducting through-the-weather surveillance and detecting stationary, dismounted and moving targets.
Other radar capabilities highlighted will include the AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR), Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR), Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) and the LONGBOW fire control radar.
Additionally, Northrop Grumman will highlight its solution for the Black Hawk cockpit digitization upgrade as well as Quick Mission, a mission-focused, multisource ISR solution that drives affordability through a platform and a sensor-agnostic system engineered to support multiple missions safely. The flexibility of this open system will enable agile responses to continually evolving threats now and in the future.
