Powering multi-domain dominance for Army Missions

Powering multi-domain dominance for Army Missions

In our commitment to support the U.S. Army's modernization transformation, Northrop Grumman delivers advanced technologies, 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.

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.

Multifunction Sensors

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.
