Northrop Grumman has been awarded a pre-planned product improvement (P3I) contract for the Joint Tactical Ground Station (JTAGS) from the U.S. Army.

Under the three-year initial agreement valued at $36 million, Northrop Grumman will provide development and delivery of two JTAGS P3I prototype systems. The development scope includes design, fabrication, test and demonstration of the units prior to delivery. 

"This contract begins the development phase of the JTAGS P3I program, bringing us closer to delivering improved missile warning for our warfighters," said Ed Bush, vice president of Northrop Grumman's C4ISR Networked Systems business unit. "This award continues our longstanding relationship with the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command."

JTAGS is a relocatable information processing system that receives and processes in-theater, infrared data downlinked from satellite sensors of the Defense Support Program, Space Based Infrared System and other systems. JTAGS disseminates warning, alerting and cueing information on tactical ballistic missiles and other tactical events of interest throughout the theater using multiple communications networks.

JTAGS P3I, as a replacement for the current JTAGS system, will be located in a fixed facility. The upgraded system will provide significant performance improvements and the ability to process additional sensors. JTAGS units are deployed worldwide.
