NorthropLogoNorthrop Grumman is developing a radar for the U.S. Marine Corps to detect and track targets in the air such as a fixed-wing aircraft, drones and helicopters.

The AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar, known as G/ATOR, recently underwent a government test over two phases to evaluate its performance against different types of flight profiles, Northrop said Tuesday.

Testing took place at the company’s surface combat systems  in Wallops Island, Va.

Steve McCoy, Northrop vice president for tactical sensor solutions, said the company is aiming to use open architecture for the radar and move it toward operational service.

Northrop also evaluated the radar’s ability to detect different sizes and speeds of airborne targets.G/ATOR is intended to be digitally interoperable with other radars and be updated only through software, Northrop says.
