Northrop Grumman demonstrates LTAMDS capability to US Army

Northrop Grumman Corp of Redondo Beach, CA, USA demonstrated its in-production solution for the US Army’s Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor (LTAMDS) program during an open ‘Sense Off’ competition at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico from 16 May – 1 June.

“Our mature, gallium nitride (GaN)-based design demonstrated an advanced system with our current capabilities aligned with the Army’s requirements,” says Christine Harbison, VP, land and avionics C4ISR division, Northrop Grumman. “Our solution supports the need for rapid deployment with an architecture that allows for significant margin of capability growth to protect our warfighters today and in the rapidly changing threat environment,” she adds.

Northrop Grumman says that its LTAMDS solution demonstrated a mission-capable system with growth potential leveraging affordable, low-risk, in-production and fielded technologies from across the company’s active electronically scanned array (AESA) portfolio. The system provides a 360-degree full-sector mission capability. Designed from the outset to meet the warfighters’ current and future needs, the LTAMDS solution aligns with the Army’s top requirements, including speed to field. An embedded logistics capability enables quicker and more affordable modernization and better sustainability over the life-cycle of the program.

Building on its decades of expertise in sea-, land-, air- and space-based military radar technology and high-performance microelectronics, the LTAMDS solution is Northrop Grumman’s latest sensor product to incorporate and use GaN high-power-density radio frequency components for greater performance.

Having completed the demonstration phase, the firm will deliver its final LTAMDS proposal to the Army in the coming weeks for evaluation.
