AN/ZPY-2 Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP)

MP-RTIP on Global Hawk

The Latest Capability in Air-to-Surface/Air-to-Air Surveillance

The MP-RTIP radar uses active electronically scanned array (AESA) technology and commercial off-the-shelf hardware to deliver long range, very high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR), ground moving target indicator (GMTI) capabilities and air target tracking. Fundamental to the radar is its modular scalable design, which allows it to be applied to multiple airborne platforms.

MP-RTIP will provide war fighters improved combat identification, target tracking and time critical targeting, while adding an impressive new air-to-air capability to support cruise missile defense. This powerful combination can aid commanders in developing predictive battlespace awareness and targeting solutions.

The Multi-Platform Radar Technology Insertion Program (MP-RTIP) radar is redefining Air-to-Surface/Air-to-Air Surveillance. A Northrop Grumman - Raytheon team is developing the radar for the U.S. Air Force Electronic Systems Center. MP-RTIP, currently in the system development and demonstration phase, captures the radar systems expertise of both companies under the leadership of Northrop Grumman's Aerospace Systems Sector.
