HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Aug. 7, 2017 – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) will showcase key space and missile defense capabilities during the 20th Annual Space and Missile Defense Symposium at the Von Braun Center, Aug. 8-10. The symposium’s theme is “Enabling Decisive Action in a Multi-Domain Environment.”
This year, symposium attendees can participate in a wargame, developed by Northrop Grumman under the direction of the Missile Defense Agency, to better understand the concept of operations for future ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) capabilities. The interactive simulation provides a notional representation of 2027 BMDS.
Northrop Grumman capabilities in booth 601 at the symposium include:
- A demonstration of integrated air and missile defense command and control and a family of programs including Counter-Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM); Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System (IBCS); and the Joint Tactical Ground Station (JTAGS). These capabilities and programs were designed and developed to counter the set of threats against Army and joint forces – from RAM to aircraft and helicopters to ballistic missiles.
- The Ballistic Missile Defense International Simulation (BMD I-SIM) tool that provides an enabling capability to perpetually evolve the BMDS with concept development, planning and assessment of elements and system performance against ballistic missile threats. The BMD I-SIM is one of many Northrop Grumman-developed tools used to conduct complex BMDS-level events including ground tests, flight tests, wargames and military exercises.
- An array of inertial navigation systems and sensors that provide reliable Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (A-PNT) solutions for all domains. Featured navigation products include the LN-251, LN-200, G-2000 and Scalable SIRU™. As the longtime, sole inertial measurement supplier for previous kill vehicles, including the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle and Standard Missile-3, Northrop Grumman offers high-performance, low-risk and proven solutions to customers.
- The AN/TPS-80 Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR) is a highly mobile multi-mission radar system designed to fully support worldwide expeditionary requirements. The G/ATOR system provides multifaceted detection and tracking capabilities to enable engagement of a wide range of hostile threats, and offers robust air traffic control capabilities to ensure the safety of Marines worldwide.
- The Highly Adaptable Multi-Mission Radar (HAMMR) is a multi-mission radar that provides continuous 360-degree protection against multiple ground and airborne targets — all while operating on-the-move so soldiers on the ground can maintain their operational pace without sacrificing protection. HAMMR is based on proven active electronically scanned array technology already in production.
Tarik Reyes, vice president, missile defense and protective systems business development, Northrop Grumman, will be part of an industry panel, “Building Enablers for Decisive Action in a Multi-Domain Environment.” Kenneth Todorov, director, global air and missile defense, Northrop Grumman, will take part in the “Next Generation Missile Defense” panel. Additionally, Northrop Grumman personnel will present “Making Fast and Highly Informed Decisions Using Augmented Reality as a Mechanism for Deep Analysis into a System of Systems” and “Leveraging Model-based System Engineering as a Decision Aide” during the symposium’s technology track.
