The world's most capable multi-function/multi-spectral warning sensor
Powering multi-domain dominance for Army Missions
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
Rotary Wing Modular, Open Systems Approach
Northrop Grumman’s integrated, open systems architecture features high performance across multiple platforms and enables software-defined upgrades. Our open, flexible, plug & play architecture supports rapid and timely capability enhancements, so our customers benefit from the most efficient and affordable solutions over a program’s life cycle.
Future of Vertical Lift
Northrop Grumman is supporting the U.S. Army and other services as they modernize the aviation fleet. Together, we are ensuring that all enduring and future platforms can fly, fight and prevail in the Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) environment.
Assured Positioning, Navigation & Timing
Northrop Grumman’s A-PNT approach moves the burden away from sole reliance on GPS to the complementary use of inertial devices augmented with additional alternative methods of navigation. The Inertial Navigation Systems’ great advantage is that they cannot be spoofed or jammed.
A multifunction sensor, unlike traditional sensors, consolidates multiple capabilities into a single sensor, decreasing both the number of apertures needed and the size, weight, and power requirements for the advanced capabilities. Sophisticated multifunction apertures can deploy several functions simultaneously, and are fully software-defined, allowing them to be repurposed or rapidly updated for changing threats without expensive and costly hardware modifications.
Networking & Communications
Creating a resilient, cyber-secure, open and integrated communications network is critical to maintaining the strategic advantage needed to succeed across today’s technology-driven battlespace.
