Northrop Grumman Radars for USN

By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News

Northrop Grumman won a contract by the U.S. Navy to supply three AN/SPQ-9B radar systems for amphibious and Arleigh Burke class ships. Under the $20.4 million contract award, Northrop Grumman will supply three AN/SPQ-9B radar systems for delivery in the second quarter of 2015. This contract adds to the 53 radar systems the company has already delivered, or is under contract to deliver. Northrop Grumman began low-rate initial production of the AN/SPQ-9B in 2000 and full-rate production in 2004. The high-resolution, X-band AN/SPQ-9B radar system will improve the vessels’ ability to defend against small high-speed threats, such as surface-skimming anti-ship missiles, and will be integrated with the ships’ fire-control systems.
