Northrop Grumman has received a contract of an undisclosed value to develop a radar warning system for U.S. Army aviators to counter radio frequency threats across a wide spectral range.

The company said Monday it will provide the AN/APR-39E(V)2 system with a digital receiver exciter architecture and signal processing algorithms designed to detect and track RF guided anti-aircraft weapons.

Brent Toland, vice president of land and avionics C4ISR at Northrop, said the receiver technology works to recognize potential threats such as millimeter wave radars.

The Falls Church, Va.-based defense firm incorporates the DRE architecture into other electronic warfare technologies including the AN/APR-39D(V)2 receiver.
