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.
