The Northrop Grumman Advanced Threat Warner (ATW) system is the world's most capable multi-function/multi-spectral warning sensor.
Enabling the US Army to dominate in every domain
In our commitment to support the U.S. Army's modernization transformation, Northrop Grumman delivers highly technical, critical capabilities to soldiers and combat formations quickly and affordably.
With deep expertise and understanding of the multi-domain battle, our combat avionics, integrated air and missile defense, cyber security, training, and multifunction mission systems, can affordably enable the transition back to multi-spectral competencies.
Our open, modular architecture also allows for rapid integration and the ability to update systems as the threat evolves, providing the decisive advantage needed for mission success.
Mission Systems Architectures
Modular Open Systems Approach
Open architecture systems enhance how new capabilities are acquired and delivered to the Warfighter, which allows agencies to work with multiple developers to upgrade capabilities. Such systems increase competition, enable upgrade regardless of developer, increase acquisition speed and broaden opportunity for updates.
Multi-function systems enable rapid updates to meet changing threats and mission needs. By updating software in these systems they can meet a new radar tracking requirement or help combat a new cyber threat. Multi-function systems also enhance systems affordability and can be used to increase the capability of legacy systems.
The LONGBOW Fire Control Radar enables the potent Apache attack helicopter to detect, classify and prioritize moving or stationary land, sea or air targets, day or night, in poor weather and obscured conditions; then attack those targets with pinpoint accuracy from ranges that safeguard the lives of the aircrew increasing mission lethality and survivability.
In support of American shipbuilder, Vigor’s groundbreaking landing craft program for the U.S. Army, the Maneuver Support Vessel – Light (MSVL), Northrop Grumman’s Navigation & Maritime Systems Division is providing the C4I systems engineering and program management support to BMT Designers & Planners.
Northrop Grumman's approach moves the burden of trusted A-PNT Hub away from sole reliance on GPS to the complementary use of inertial devices augmented with additional alternative methods of navigation.
