Northrop Demos Ground-Based Targeting System Against UAS; Kay Burch Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Venom ground targeting systemNorthrop Grumman has conducted a demonstration of a ground-based system to test its production of targeting data and detection and monitoring of an adversary’s unmanned aircraft system.

The company demonstrated the Venom platform at the U.S. Army's Maneuver-Fires Integrated Experiment held in Oklahoma, Northrop said Tuesday.

The Venom system tracked small drones and provided two land-based vehicles with target coordinates for fire support against hostile UAS threats during the demonstration.

“Adding counter-UAS and on-the-move targeting will give our warfighters greater flexibility in mission planning and execution,” said Kay Burch, vice president of communications, intelligence and networking solutions at Northrop.

Venom has a Northrop-built Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder that works to provide grid coordinates and identify targets during night and day.
