Northrop Grumman to Support US Navy Search and Fire Control Radar

Northrop Grumman has been awarded the role of design agent for the AN/SPQ-9B surface search and fire control radar by the US Navy.

As design agent, Northrop Grumman will provide support to existing and future systems, troubleshoot issues, perform redesigns as parts go obsolete and add new capabilities to the baseline system. This follow-on engineering services contract will continue to support the installed base of 50 AN/SPQ-9B radar systems on ships and at six land sites, as well as future systems as they are delivered to the fleet. It will provide the Navy with uninterrupted technical assistance in their system installations, upgrades, and follow-on production efforts. 

This engineering services contract continues Northrop Grumman’s leadership in hardware and software development for the anti-cruise missile defense mission for the fleet. The system provides fire-control quality track data in stressing, high-clutter environments to protect high-value surface combatants. For more information, click here.
