Northrop Grumman's industry leadership in advanced composite structures makes us the partner of choice to design, develop and fabricate technically complex composite structures and components for commercial and military aircraft, rockets and naval applications.
Military Aviation Systems
Providing technological leadership in all aspects of military aviation.
Northrop Grumman has a proud tradition of providing technological leadership in all aspects of military aviation and aircrafts, such as manned, unmanned, targeting, surveillance, and aircraft self-protection systems that enable warfighters to accomplish missions anytime, anywhere and under any conditions.
Manned and Unmanned Aircraft
AN/ZPY-1 STARLite is a small, lightweight SAR/GMTI/DMTI radar used for supporting tactical operations. STARLite offers superior performance at low cost.
The Most Capable and Reliable High Performance Aerial Target System
Venom is a remote-controlled laser designator rangefinder telescoping mast system with an automatic tracking device.
The Northrop Grumman AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task-Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) multi-mission air surveillance system can detect, identify and track airborne threats common to combat environments, such as cruise missiles, aircraft and remotely piloted vehicles, as well as rocket, artillery and mortar fire.
When deployed, the Vehicle and Dismount Exploitation Radar (VADER) will allow accurate Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) data and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery to be readily available to ground commanders in real time.
Aircraft Self-Protection Systems
Northrop Grumman's AN/AAQ-37 Distributed Aperture System (DAS) for the F-35 is the only 360 degree, spherical situational awareness system in the electro-optical distributed aperture system (DAS).
The Northrop Grumman AN/ALQ-131 Electronic Countermeasures (ECM) pod is the most successful ECM system ever built, using state-of-the-art technology to successfully protect aircrews and aircraft in every conflict since becoming operational.
The SABR APG-83 is an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) fire control radar. Building on Northrop Grumman's 40-year legacy producing radars for the F-16, it integrates within the F-16's current structural, power and cooling constraints without Group A aircraft modification.
The Northrop Grumman APR-39D(V)2 Radar Warning Receiver (RWR)/Electronic Warfare Management System maximizes survivability by improving aircrew situational awareness via interactive management of all onboard sensors and countermeasures.
Modernization Support Services and Integrated Avionics
Northrop Grumman's Integrated Avionics Suite for the UH-60V modernizes the U.S. Army's UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters.
