The STARLite Tactical Radar – lightweight will be on display

Northrop Grumman Corporation, a leader in global security, will be highlighting its most significant advances in developing, producing and modernizing U.S. military systems and related electronic technologies at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition, taking place Oct. 21-23 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Northrop Grumman’s AUSA exhibit booth #6330 will provide an overview of the company’s global security offerings in unmanned systems, C4ISR, cyber, and logistics and modernization.

On display will be Northrop Grumman’s family of tactical radars, including the vehicle and dismount exploitation radar (VADER) and the small tactical radar – lightweight (STARLite), which is the U.S. Army radar program of record for the MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned aircraft system. Weighing just 65 pounds, STARLite is ideal for equipping a variety of manned and unmanned aerial system platforms for mission-critical tactical reconnaissance. STARLite is capable of conducting through-the-weather surveillance and detecting stationary, dismounted and moving targets.

Other radar capabilities highlighted will include the AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR), Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR), Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) and the LONGBOW fire control radar.

Additionally, Northrop Grumman will highlight its solution for the Black Hawk cockpit digitization upgrade as well as Quick Mission™, a mission-focused, multisource ISR solution that drives affordability through a platform and a sensor-agnostic system engineered to support multiple missions safely. The flexibility of this open system will enable agile responses to continually evolving threats now and in the future.
