SHORAD (Short-Range Air Defense)

Northrop Grumman's short-range air defense (SHORAD) capabilities protect U.S. and allied forces from a wide range of manned and unmanned air and missile threats. Our capabilities utilize sensors, weapons and command control to acquire, track, verify, engage and defeat incoming threats.

SHORAD (Short-Range Air Defense)

Our SHORAD components provide the command and control (C2) and situational awareness to respond to diverse threats 24/7, with scalable solutions aiding decision-making, making responses faster and more effective. Our solutions build upon existing Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) architecture, offering a clear path to integrate a variety of sensors and solutions to defeat current and future threats.
