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
Our transformational approach to avionics modernizes the U.S. Army’s UH-60L Black Hawk helicopters with a glass cockpit, including an integrated computational system, visual display system and Control Display Units. Our solution extends the life and mission capabilities of the UH-60 platform.
OpenLift Modular, Open Systems Approach
Northrop Grumman’s integrated, open systems architecture – OpenLift – 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.
Multi-function systems enable rapid updates to meet evolving 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.
