September 12, 2016

The United States Marine Corps ups original order.

 

In addition to the six of such systems already in development, the United States Marine Corps has ordered an additional nine GaN G/ATOR systems from Northrop Grumman.

 

The G/ATORs, short for Ground/Air Task Orientated Radar is a being touted as a next-generation Surveillance and Defense Radar. The systems will eventually be used for a number of applications, Northrop Grumman reports:

“These nine additional systems and all subsequent G/ATOR systems incorporate advanced Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology…. [GaN’s] higher output power can substantially increase threat detection and tracking ranges for all four G/ATOR mission capabilities: air surveillance, weapon cueing, counter-fire target acquisition and air traffic control.”

 

The first set of these G/ATOR systems are scheduled to be delivered on or around February 2017.
