Northrop Grumman to Develop Radar Warning Receivers for the US Army

Northrop Grumman has received an award from the U.S. Army to develop the next generation of radar threat warning sensors. Sophisticated radio frequency-guided weapons are becoming more widely used throughout the world, posing a new threat to aviators in contested airspace. Protecting aircrews from this new generation of highly mobile anti-aircraft weapons requires the ability to track a broader variety of threats across a wider spectral range.

The AN/APR-39E(V)2, previously known as the Modernized Radar Warning Receiver, will provide a new level of precision in detecting, locating and identifying threats by combining Northrop Grumman’s digital receiver exciter (DRE) architecture with novel digital signal processing algorithms.

The DRE architecture is also employed on the AN/APR-39E(V)2 radar warning receiver and other electronic warfare systems, allowing for more rapid updates to stay ahead of the threat.

Northrop Grumman electronic warfare systems are currently protecting thousands of aircraft worldwide. Click here to learn more about this radar solution.
