Northrop Grumman is set to submit its final proposal to the U.S. Army for the production of the service“™s new Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor.
The company said Tuesday it completed the demonstration of a system for LTAMDS at a recent open competition at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
“Our mature, gallium nitride (GaN)-based design demonstrated an advanced system with our current capabilities aligned with the Army“™s requirements,“ said Christine Harbison, vice president of land and avionics at Northrop“™s C4ISR division.
In addition to GaN high power density radio frequency components, the company“™s LTAMDS system also features embedded logistics capability that will allow for more cost-effective modernization.
Northrop plans to submit its final proposal for the LTAMDS program in the following weeks for assessment.
