Meeting the challenge of evolving and emerging threats

Around the globe, modulated, encrypted and multiplexed signals are increasing in number, type and complexity, creating challenges for signal surveillance and exploitation.

Today’s airborne payloads require advanced, open and modular architectural designs and technical implementation to meet these challenges with improved signal location and exploitation capabilities.

Advanced Solutions for Airborne Signal Intelligence

Northrop Grumman, in partnership with the U.S. government, develops modern, integrated airborne SIGINT payloads that are affordable, scalable and sustainable for a variety of airborne platforms. The Airborne Signals Intelligence Payload (ASIP) program addresses today’s critical challenges:

  • Advanced algorithms for evolving, modern signal exploitation
  • Cross-cueing capability for tactically responsive actions
  • Exploitation in dense signal environments
  • Emphasis on use of COTS products
  • Modular, open architecture using industry Joint Airborne SIGINT Architecture, enabling future enhancements
  • Scalability to meet requirements of a variety of platforms
  • Software upgradeability for rapid response to new and emerging threats
  • Greater operational flexibility in support of warfighters, with common designs shared among platforms
  • Reduced complexity in operations, maintenance and logistics support
  • Improved affordability for multiple platform fleet modernization
  • Reduced need for signal-specific hardware, based on greater leverage of COTS and commercial development
