Software Defined Radio Systems (SDRs)

Northrop Grumman is a pioneer of software defined radios (SDRs) that are size, weight and power (SWAP) efficient while providing multiple functions simultaneously.

Integrated Avionics

Northrop Grumman is a leader in the development of software defined radios (SDRs) for the next generation of integrated avionics systems that provide communications, navigation and identification (CNI) functions. The company is providing the integrated CNI avionics for the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.


Northrop Grumman is a forerunner in the design of low-observable, conformal antennas utilized in a variety of military applications. These antennas can receive a vast array of signals from HF through millimeter wave, and have applications in communications, navigation and identification, electronic warfare, surveillance, counter measures and counter-counter measures. Northrop Grumman has also pioneered the development of "Smartskin" Antennas.
