Northrop to Build Army Missile Warning Prototypes; Ed Bush Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

northrop-Grumman_BLUENorthrop Grumman has won an initial three-year, $36 million contract to develop missile warning technology prototypes for the U.S. Army.

The pre-planned product improvement contract calls on the company to design, build, test and deploy two Joint Tactical Ground Station P3I prototypes, Northrop said Wednesday.

Ed Bush, vice president of C4ISR networked systems at Northrop, said the contract marks the start of the JTAGS P3I initiative’s development stage.

“This award continues our longstanding relationship with the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command,” Bush added.

JTAGS is intended to be an information processing system that obtains and processes in-theater and infrared data from satellites in order to warn of ballistic missiles or other tactical issues.
