This three-dimensional, multi-mode, gallium nitride (GaN) Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) with 360-degree coverage is operationally deployed with the Marine Corps expeditionary force. It entered full-rate production in June 2019.

The proven capability of the AN/TPS-80 ensures robust air defense for the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of the U.S. armed forces, as well as select international customers.

Air Defense

This multi-mission air surveillance system can detect, identify and track airborne threats common to combat environments. These include cruise missiles, aircraft and remotely piloted vehicles, as well as rocket, artillery and mortar fire.

The long-range, high-performance AN/TPS-80 replaces five of the Marine Corps' single-mission radars with one multi-mission system, reducing cost and complexity while streamlining training. It consolidates the air surveillance, air defense and counterfire target acquisition missions of the AN/TPQ-46, UPS-3, AN/TPS-63, AN/MPQ-62 and AN/TPS-73 into one package with radar, power and communications elements.

Radar Coverage

Northrop Grumman's solution provides total surveillance for air and missile defense, as well as air traffic control. AN/TPS-80 also cues air defense weapons to destroy airborne threats and determines launch points of hostile fire for counterstrikes.

This mission capability is made possible within a secure and scalable open systems architecture. This means AN/TPS-80 can more easily and affordably introduce new hardware, software and mission capabilities compared to old equipment.

A radar for all missions, the AN/TPS-80 has you covered.
