Northrop Taps Saab for Marine Corps G/ATOR Radar Components, Subsystems - top government contractors - best government contracting event

gator-1A U.S.-based subsidiary of Saab has received a potential $18.6 million subcontract from Northrop Grumman to provide components and subsystems in support of a U.S. Marine Corps radar production program.

Saab Defense and Security will provide software, subsystems and assemblies for the next nine AN/TPS-80 ground/air task oriented radar low-rate initial production units under the contract, Saab said Monday.

Northrop secured a potential four-year $375.6 million contract from the U.S. Navy  to produce and deliver nine AN/TPS-80 G/ATOR systems, GovCon Wire reported Sept. 1.

As prime contractor, Northrop will integrate Saab-built assemblies into Lots 3 to 5 G/ATOR units that will be delivered to the Marine Corps from 2018 forward.

Saab previously supplied six systems to Northrop under a prior contract for LRIP Lots 1 and 2.

The new subcontract award contains options for additional assemblies and associated spares, Saab said.

The G/ATOR program aims to equip the Marine Corps with a single radar type for air surveillance, air defense, ground weapon locating and air traffic control missions.
