Northrop Grumman to Supply Additional AN/TPS-80 Radars to the US Marines

Northrop Grumman has received an order from the U.S. Marine Corps for two additional AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) systems as part of the full-rate production Lot 2 award received in December 2019. This order completes the planned Lot 2 procurement for a total of eight systems for the Marine Corps.

Mike Meaney, vice president of Northrop Grumman stated that this order enables the company to keep the G/ATOR production pipeline full in anticipation for a Lot 3 award next year.

In June 2019, the Marine Corps awarded Northrop Grumman a $958 million full-rate production contract for 30 of the Gallium Nitride-based (GaN) G/ATOR systems.

The AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR is an advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) multi-mission radar that leverages GaN to provide comprehensive real-time, full-sector, 360-degree situational awareness against a broad array of threats.
