Northrop Grumman has signed an agreement with Trex Enterprises Corporation to bring celestial navigation technology to the precision targeting capability provided to the U.S. military and allied forces.

The agreement allows Northrop Grumman to produce and integrate this celestial navigation capability into ground targeting systems which offers greater precision in locating targets.

"The integration of celestial navigation technology marks an important milestone on the precision targeting technology roadmap," said Gordon Stewart, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman's Laser Systems business unit. "We will continue to refine and grow the application of celestial navigation for precision targeting across our production laser systems for U.S. and coalition warfighters."

Northrop Grumman has successfully completed formal qualification for its ground soldier targeting system with the celestial navigation enhancement and is delivering systems to support the immediate needs of deployed soldiers.

"Trex is excited to collaborate with Northrop Grumman to further advance and mature our celestial navigation technologies and products," said Ken Tang, chairman and CEO of Trex Enterprises. "The synergy between Trex research and development expertise and Northrop Grumman engineering and production capability will surely increase and accelerate benefits to our soldiers."
