Northrop Grumman Inertial Navigation Systems calculate direction moved over time, with a varying degree of drift, and with the use of high-precision oscillators provide continuity of time. The great advantage of the Inertial Navigation System is that it cannot be spoofed or jammed.
To stay one-step ahead of the enemy, the modern battlefield requires the most advanced technologies that offer industry-leading performance in clutter-rich, contested environments. Northrop Grumman’s all-seeing radars – AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR, HAMMR, and the AN/TPS-80 Long Range Radar provide a complete, operational picture and unambiguous view of the battlespace to help warfighters make better decisions when it matters most.
Guided Projectiles and Precision Weapons
Northrop Grumman is the industry leader in providing guided projectiles and precision weapons that are employed from air, land and sea based platforms. These weapons provide the ability to engage difficult targets with precision to increase effects while limiting the chance of collateral damage.
Technology and Innovation
For some, the word ‘impossible’ ends discussions. For us, it’s a starting point.
