United States : NORTHROP GRUMMAN to receive fund from ARMY, NAVY for electronic warfare system.

Northrop Grumman is to receive fund from the Army and Navy to develop and test an advanced radar and electronic warfare system.

Under a joint services contract, Northrop will produce 18 pre-production units of the APR-39D(V)2 radar warning receiver/electronic warfare management system. Testing of hardware, software and platform integration will be carried out during 2015.

According to Northrop, the system is capable of providing a variety of fixed-, rotary- and tilt-wing aircraft with 360-degree coverage, detecting and identifying types of threats, their bearing and lethality,. It provides interactive management of all onboard sensors and countermeasures and could enhance situational awareness.

Janine Nyre, the company s vice president of radio frequency combat information systems, said, Our APR-39D(V)2 merges the baseline capability of previous systems with the Northrop Grumman digital receiver technology to provide advanced capability for today's and tomorrow's threat environment. This lightweight system maintains interfaces with legacy systems and includes flexibility for future growth enhancements.

APR-39 systems' versions have been installed on nearly 7,000 domestic and international aircraft, which includes military aircraft, but occasionally undergo improvements.
